This graphic shows an illustration of a prototype astronaut suit, left, along with suit samples included in the calibration target, lower right, belonging to the instrument called Scanning Habitable Environments with Raman & Luminescence for Organics and Chemicals (SHERLOC), aboard the Perseverance rover. They are the first spacesuit materials ever sent to Mars. The spacesuit materials will be observed to see how they hold up in the intense radiation on the Martian surface.
