more panels installed

Spotted an article at SpaceFlightNow regarding astronauts on the International Space Station installing another set of solar array panels.

These are the new shorter smaller panels at the canted angle to the mains. They are called the ISS Roll-Out Solar Array or iROSA. They unfurl on their own.

Six units will be installed. When complete, the iROSA units along with the original arrays will generated 215 kilowatts of electricity.
