China's space agency said the “Tianvan-1" probe is in stable condition and is already 15 million kilometers from Earth en route to Mars, the Associated Press reported.
When it arrives off Mars in February next year, Tianvan-1" will be about 195 million km from Earth and will have travelled 470 million km.

The Tianvan-1" probe was launched on July 23rd from the Wenchang Cosmodrome in the southern Chinese province of Hainan. It will approach Mars with a series of four maneuvers, the first of which was successfully completed in early August, BTA reported.

However, Chinese authorities do not give any information about the experimental multi-flight spacecraft, which a week ago returned to Earth after a two-day flight.
