As announced by the China National Space Administration, the robot family will include Mars rovers, asteroid explorers, robotic arms and service robots that can help maintain and repair an in-orbit space station, space laboratories and satellites. China plans to send an unmanned probe to orbit and land on Mars around 2020. Since the 1960s, more than 40 probes have journeyed to Mars, but only 19 have accomplished their missions.
