The port side of NASA's Perseverance Mars rover can be seen in this image taken on Nov. 16, 2019, in High Bay 1 of the Spacecraft Assembly Facility at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Southern California. At the top left, the rover's remote sensing mast can be seen in the deployed position. To the right of the mast in the center of the image is the light gray high-gain antenna. At center of the image, attached to the side of the rover, is a black cable bracket (with gold cabling running through it). Attached to the top of this black bracket – and gray in color – is the Entry Descent and Landing (EDL) microphone. The rectangular screen to the right of the cable bracket is the rover chassis HEPA filter, which is above the white box housing the Mars Oxygen In-Situ Resource Utilization Experiment (MOXIE) inlet filter assembly. Gray and bright orange cables seen in the foreground of the image belong to ground support equipment.
