SPACE VEHICLE HIGHLIGHT
The Relativity Mission (GP-B) solar array panel coupons were successfully release tested in LMMS building 251 and verification was obtained from the solar array product center that the solar cells performed nominally after the three design releases. This test verifies the release dynamics do not affect cell performance.
