    Hi All,
    
     From what I can find, each deployed, 7-panel radiator is about 13m (44 ft) 
    long.  This is for the temporary radiators.  Permanent radiator system will 
    be 23m (75 ft) long.  The diagrams of the two deployed radiators give 
    conflicting labels.
    
    It is confusing because of "NASA speak" in the technical manuals.  See for 
    yourself.

    The 6Mb PDF file (ISS Familiarization Manual) is a terrific reference, but 
    juggling all those acronyms can give you a headache.  :)
    
    Note: My older version of Adobe Reader crashed with this.  New version 4.x 
    works much better.
