    The NASA press releases said that the new solar array (or "wings" as the
    worthless media likes to call them) can produce as much as 50 kW of
    power.  Now, according to the NASA reports (at least as I understand it),
    only a tiny fraction of that predicted power (in the 10%-20% range) is
    actually being realized.  Are all the power cable hook-ups and
    modifications incomplete, or is the sheer majority of the power being
    re-routed to the third power-hungry module (but I thought that Destiny is
    the power-hungry module)?  Anybody know what's going on?
