Lander Assembly: Day 11
(200 words excerpt, click title or image to see full post)

On the eleventh and final day of the lander assembly, the team installed all mass simulators to verify fit. This will be the configuration of the lander structure during shake testing in California. For the purposes of display, the fuel and oxidizer tank mass simulators were replaced with mock fuel tanks. The prototype lander legs were completed, painted and installed on the lander. These legs are for display purposes and will not be installed during testing.
