    Just watching the undocking of Atlantis and notice that the truss array 
    radiators are in opposing directions....port facing "back" starboard facing 
    forward to the direction of travel.
    When a truss radiator  was last in this orientation , before sun tracking 
    was initially switched on , it quite often produced a flare......so it will 
    be interesting to see if this happens again.
