Dust accumulation on InSight's solar panels to sol 122 Two photos of InSight's solar panel taken shortly after landing (left) and four months after (right) show how dust has settled on them over time. InSight was designed with extra-large solar panels to provide plenty of power over a full Mars year even with substantial dust accumulation. NASA / JPL-Caltech / Paul Hammond
