    Hi:
    
    On the web page:
    http://www.earthfiles.com/news.php?ID=1723&category=Science
    they talk about solar panels being used to extend the time on orbit from 
    a couple of weeks for the space shuttle to 6 months for the X37-B.
    But the Wiki page for the X37-B only mentions liquid fuel propulsion.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X-37B
    How does having solar panels translate into propulsion?
