InSight places the SEIS wind and thermal shield, sol 66 Placing the dome-shaped wind and thermal shield (WTS) is the last step in the physical configuration of InSight's SEIS instrument. With the benefit of the WTS' insulation, SEIS is able to operate around the Martian clock, even during the cold night. InSight placed the WTS on sol 66 (2 February 2019). NASA / JPL-Caltech / IPGP
