Wow! I just got an email message from someone named Hariette Brewer, entitled “We approved yours loan”! Should I check it out, or do you think it’s “spam”?

ONE ARAB'S APOLOGY By EMILIO KARIM DABUL - New York Post Online Edition: Postopinion

In spite of two lost fasteners and delays from unspecified software problems that prevented proper engagement of one of the positioning motors, STS-115 got the new solar panels for ISS deployed. They left the arrays partly deployed in the Sun to warm them, to “unstick” the panels from each other before full deployment. This problem has been seen on earlier missions, and probably results in part from the panels being stored in the compressed and folded position for many years.
