china allegedly copied mars rover

 This week's official YouTube channel also posted a video comparing the two clips, and several commenters ended up criticizing the Chinese version.

“Only in China where they replicate everything and when you call them out, they term it fake news,” one person remarked. A second commenter joked, "CCP Means Cut, Copy, and Paste."

Meanwhile, the news source reached out to NASA for comment on the contentious issue, but a spokesman merely stated that “NASA's imagery is made freely available for use by the public” without providing any further explanation.
