Components are visible on the port side of the Perseverance rover in this close-up 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 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. Below the cable bracket are the Mars Oxygen In-Situ Resource Utilization Experiment (MOXIE) wall ports. The orange cable passing over it is part of ground support equipment.
