SEIS dangling, sol 22
On sol 22, InSight's robotic arm gripped the SEIS instrument, lifted it off of its deck, and set it onto the surface of Mars. In this photo, the instrument is dangling in midair, twisting slightly during the relatively long exposure of the image, taken just after local sunset.
