The International Space Station is about to get full power for the first time. Two astronauts today installed the last pair of solar panels for the station in a six-hour spacewalk, reports Space.com. The station, which now has a total of eight solar panels, will unfurl the newly installed pair tomorrow. Astronauts Steven Swanson and Richard Arnold had some trouble with cables, but nothing major.
"It wasn't quite as smooth as we had hoped, but those guys did a great job," said Discovery astronaut Joseph Acaba.
