Technicians and engineers dressed from head to toe in blue coveralls (called 'bunny suits') prepare the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter's large, black high-gain antenna (that resembles a satellite dish) to be mated with the body of the spacecraft. The bus of the spacecraft with nearly all of its instruments in place, sits just to the left of the people pictured. Parts of the orbiter are covered in gold, shiny thermal blanketing. Facing directly upward is the spacecraft's huge Hi-RISE camera covered in black protective blanketing.

In this image, six individuals sit at consoles in front of computers during a launch rehearsal for the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter mission. Launch vehicle manager Arden Acord (a gray-haired, Caucasian middle-aged man with a goatee) points to data on project manager Jim Graf's computer. Graf is a brown-haired Caucasian man in his fifties. Flight system manager Howard Eisen sits to Graf's left. He is a Caucasian man with brown hair and a goatee. Next to Eisen are two Lockheed Martin employees, one of whom is Tammy Harrington, the mission integration manager. She is a blond woman in her forties.

A group of eight engineers and technicians dressed in white and blue cleanroom coveralls and bonnets (called 'bunny suits') stand and watch as the large, boxy bus of the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter is lifted by a large, white mechanism. The bus is covered in protective, gold thermal blanketing.

In this image, a Caucasian man wears a white, protective suit in a cleanroom. His face is mostly covered and his hands are gloved. He is working on the CRISM instrument for the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter mission. The instrument sits on a slanted aluminum-like board covered with yellow Kapton tape - a low-static tape safe for using in cleanrooms and near or on instrumentation.

This image is an artist's concept of a view looking down on NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. The spacecraft is pictured using its Shallow Subsurface Radar instrument (SHARAD) to "look" under the surface of Mars.
