One of the challenging missions for China's Mars probe is to find out what the surface of Mars is made of. Equipped with Mars Surface Composition Detector and Mars Mineralogy Spectrometer, the probe will investigate surface soil characteristics, water-ice distribution and analyze the surface material composition. China launched a Mars probe on Thursday, designed to complete orbiting, landing and roving in one mission, taking the first step in its planetary exploration of the solar system.
