heard of unfurl

I knew that new solar panels were shipped to the International Space Station. I knew they were smaller and more efficient. I knew the current/old panels were "wearing out" and Station needs more energy. And I had heard that the first attempt to deploy the new arrays didn't happen, due to Murphy's Law. But I spotted the article at that indicated some success. The first of the new six arrays was unfurled.

I remember watching them unfurl the current ones at the CAO with you and them seeing the space station in the sky that night.
