Was Crocodile stronger at Marineford? Or was he holding back in Alabasta?

 During the Alabasta arc, Crocodile displayed a level of power that was initially considered overwhelming by the Straw Hat Pirates. He possessed the Logia-type Devil Fruit called the Suna Suna no Mi (Sand-Sand Fruit), which granted him the ability to control and transform into sand. He had a reputation as a Shichibukai and controlled the desert kingdom of Alabasta from the shadows. His strength was showcased through his battles with Luffy and others. At Marineford, Crocodile was present as part of the war that took place at Marine Headquarters. While he did participate in the battle, he didn't display the same level of dominance as some other powerful characters present. This has led fans to speculate that he might not have been as strong as initially portrayed in Alabasta. It's important to note that power scaling and character abilities can be subject to interpretation and development by the author. Oda often keeps details deliberately open-ended to keep the story intriguing.

China's Mars probe: The rover's


China's first Mars meanderer, Zhurong, has landed on the red planet, turning into the country's first rocket arriving on Mars on Saturday. On a note of celebratory leap forwards, the meanderer will do more errands and even experience obscure circumstances in the accompanying three months. 

The arrival module arrived at a pre-chosen zone in the southern piece of a cold space of the planet known as Utopia Planitia. Zhurong's first undertaking is endurance, as the climate on Mars is no ideal world by any means. 

Despite the fact that it would appear that a desert on Earth, the breeze speed on the red planet can arrive at 180 meters each second, multiple times more grounded than a storm on Earth. The solid hurricane could form into a tremendous dust storm blended with gigantic sands and shakes. The stones covered thickly on the outside of Mars could likewise cause inconveniences for the meanderer. 

Zhurong will take seven to eight days to act checks and overview the arrival site prior to leaving the lander onto the Martian surface, as per Geng Yan, an authority at the Lunar Exploration and Space Program Center of the CNSA. 

Tianwen-1 Mars test comprises of an orbiter, a lander and a meanderer. Through and through, they convey 13 logical instruments, with six fitted on the meanderer and seven on the orbiter. 

They will direct a thorough report on Mars, including a general review and inside and out investigation into explicit regions and assessing the "livability" of the planet. 

The lander will direct ground discovery at a fixed area, and Zhurong will wander the planet to investigate various locales during its life expectancy of in any event 90 Martian days, or 92 days on Earth. 

Zhang Rongqiao, boss planner of China's Mars Exploration Mission, said the meanderer's three-month life expectancy is "an aftereffect of exhaustive thought." He said the wanderer will gather all the information they need in the initial three months, with every one of the payloads on and pass on the information to Earth through the orbiter for transfer transmission. 

The wanderer conveys six logical payloads: a multispectral camera, a subsurface location radar, a Martian surface arrangement finder and attractive field identifier, a Mars meteorometer and a territory camera. 

The wanderer's multispectral camera reviews Martian components, minerals and rock types. Its surface organization indicator searches for hydrated minerals by disintegrating rocks and dissecting their creation. The ground-infiltrating radar delves further into the surface, 10 to 100 meters down into the ground, to study the dirt construction and quest for water or ice. 

Following three months, the orbiter, which has gotten back to the stopping circle to give hand-off correspondences to the arrival module, will circle the red planet to investigate from above for a whole Martian year, or about 23 months. 

With a high-goal camera and radar, it will plan the surface and describe its geographical design, looking for water and ice, just as rock circulation.
