The new wings, which will be the fourth and final set installed on ISS, will be used to provide 50% more power to run science experiments in space and will enable six people to live in the space station. The new equipment will be delivered by the Space Shuttle Discovery, which launches on Wednesday, and Canadarm2 will assist in the installation. The project should more or less be completed by Flight Day 8. [The Space Fellowship via Slashdot]
