The main SDO fabrication area.

In the background is the clean room in which the final flight hardware is assembled. At center is a mockup of of the SDO. At right (partially obscured behind the red-shirted fellow's head) is the structure in which the telescopes will be mounted; it's the actual flight article in the early stages of construction. Not visible in this shot, this area also houses a thermal vacuum chamber for testing flight components.
