The multi-layer insulation (MLI) for the outer part of the solar array has been integrated on the back side of the outer solar array. Right after installation the MLI was inspected. The solar cells are facing down and are situated on the lower side of the circular array, temporarily covered by protective plates (metal disk, visible in this image at the base of the spacecraft).
