Hubble Servicing Mission 3

I came across some drawings of the new Hubble solar arrays. These were installed in March 2002 on the third servicing mission. Each wing on Hubble consists of two panels of a design identical to those used on the Iridium telephone system satellites.


Here are two photos (click on the small version for a full size picture) from NASA showing the new wings. A third photo shows the radiator for the new Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS).


I have several versions of the same drawing, saved in different formats. This is a gif.    
This is the same drawing in jpeg format.    
This is another version, also as a gif.    
This is a gif of the stowed configuration.    


Hope you find these helpful.
