China's Tianwen-1 probe on Monday performed an orbital maneuver around Mars, according to the China National Space Administration (CNSA).

A 3000N engine was ignited at 5 pm (Beijing time) to ensure the probe's trajectory passes the poles of Mars. The periareion, the point in the orbit that is closest to Mars, was adjusted to 265 kilometers, according to the CNSA.
