China’s planetary exploration mission will be shortly introduced. Some typically planetary radio science results will be reviewed. Then, this report will introduce the Tianwen-2 mission, China’s follow-up mission to the Tianwen-1 Mars exploration. The Tianwen-2 mission focuses on near-earth asteroid and main-belt comet research. Targeting asteroid 2016HO3 and main-belt comet 311P, the report will delve into their characteristics, scientific goals, and exploration strategies. It aims to analyze orbital dynamics, gravitational fields, and material composition, which can unravel the solar system’s formation and evolution. Additionally, the mission’s outline and payload details will be briefly outlined.
