Reading about Yinghuo, new Mars probe, at http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/china/2009-06/09/content_8261363.htm. Dictionary translates Yinghuo as either 硬货 yìng huò ( n. ) metallic coins or 荧惑 yíng huò ( v. ) to dazzle, confuse, mislead. Not likely. I suppose huo is 火 as in 火星. Is ying 濙 (v.) revolve, as in Mars Orbiter?
