I figured he would too. I sure don't know. It looks like some kind of telescopes or something. I assume the 4 enclosed things have some relationship to the satellite dish on top.

It doesn't necessarily look permanent. Is if functional or is it just some kind of display?

Perceptive. This particular item is a mockup of the functional version.

Not telescopes, but there is a relationship to the dish.

What you are looking at are not satellites. They orbit, but not as a stand-alone. The 4 items in the pic are a package.

Cameras that take pictures in space? Of Earth? Mars? Little Green Men?

Not a lander or probe. Not a camera.

This is a component of something much larger. (What?). It performs a very specific function.
