Second Rip in ISS Solar Array

The two rips in ISS' solar array highlightedNew NASA imagery clearly shows that there are two rips in the international space station's P6 solar array. You can probably not see it on the small picture here. If so, use the hires version.

The second rip was detected on pictures taken today. Please note that the array seems to have been somewhat unfolded compared to yesterday's status (see picture).

NASA is working hard to solve the problem, as stated in the last mission status report fixing it is now the top priority. Let's hope they come up with a good plan.
