Curiosity's deck with SAM and Chemin inlets and UV sensor
Curiosity took this photo of its own deck on sol 90 (November 6, 2012). At the center are the two SAM solid sample inlet ports (SSITs). At top right is the Chemin inlet. Both of these have wind baffles that prevent the powdered sample from being blown away during transfer. To the left of the SAM inlets is the ultraviolet sensor (the six dots in a ring).
