ISS Solar Panels deployed

Great work on the ISS today. The power output has been increased so six crew members can inhabit the ISS. From Flame Trench here.

Activation of the final pair of solar wings brings the station to full power - enough to light up a small neighborhood.

The added power doubles to 30 kilowatts the amount of electricity available for science experiments in orbit, and helps NASA advance its goal of doubling station crews to six people this year.
