The Schiaparelli entry, descent and landing demonstrator module pictured inside the dedicated ISO 7 environment cleanroom tent within the "normal" ISO 8 cleanroom in the Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. The front shield (right) and back cover (centre) of the aeroshell have been removed for the installation of the gas generators for the parachute.
