Lander Assembly: Day 7
(200 words excerpt, click title or image to see full post)

The team completed the initial fit check assembly of the lander on Friday. This fit check insures that all pieces fit together optimally before they are bolted together permanently. Shortly after the assembly was completed, disassembly began. Each piece will be examined and cleaned prior to final assembly.
