China's Tianwen-1 rover is succesful

Question

China's Tianwen-1 mission is expected to launch in late July of 2020. It consists of an orbiter, lander and rover. This question asks:

"Will China's Tianwen-1 rover successfully land on Mars?"


The question resolves positive if the rover lands successfully and is able to travel at least 30 meters on the surface of Mars after landing and will resolve positive based off of credible media reporting that this has happened.

The question will resolve negatively if a mission identified as Tianwen-1 fails for any reason (explodes at launch, fails to survive descent to Mars surface, unable to establish communication, rover does not travel at least 30 meters and is unable to move further) based off of credible media reporting that this has happened.

The question resolves ambiguously if no mission identified as Tianwen-1 attempts to launch before December 31st, 2023.
