Boeing to boost space station power supply with new solar arrays


The International Space Station (ISS) will soon be getting a power-up.

The space station, which has drawn the majority of its electricity from eight large solar panels for the past 15 years, will be augmented with six new solar arrays beginning later this year. The new addition will provide a 20 to 30 percent increase in power, enabling the complex’s growing research capabilities and commercial opportunities.
