Another part of the rover has small material swatches mounted to the front of the vehicle to help validate NASA's fabric choices for future Mars-bound astronaut spacesuits. These swatches also help keep one of Perseverance's science instrument, SHERLOC (Scanning Habitable Environments with Raman & Luminescence for Organics & Chemicals), fine tuned as it investigates the dry river basin in Mars' Jezero Crater.
