Translation note:

  • NASA is an organization so its name isn’t translated if not necessary.
  • “Mars” whose translation is literally “Fire star”, is a calque from Chinese
  • “Photo” is literally “digital picture”. Normally, this distinction is not important, but in this case it is to emphasize it is not a drawing. “Digital” is also a calque.

Pronunciation

Note for tones:

  • level tone (a): /˧˧/
  • rising tone (á): /˧˥/
  • falling tone (à): /˥˩/
