It is propelled entirely by solid boosters, with a 76 booster first stage, 42 booster second, 22 booster third, and 6 booster fourth.  Roughly 1/3 of the world's aluminum production for a year was taken up by the struts used for rigidity.  For some reason, the lander carries 4 symmetrically spaced temperature sensors, one of them laid overlapping a hatch.
