I have a feeling, STS-119 will be dropped from the manifest for good with S6 remaining on the ground. Of course, I do not have an insider's knowledge -- it's just a gut feeling.
I've taken the liberty of quoting the above speculations from a current L2 thread - after all, they're just speculations, not privileged information.
Anyway, this begs the question of how much power margin the finished station will actually have.
Would there actually be enough power to operate the entire station, including all the international modules, even without the S6 arrays?
Or if problems arose during the P6 retraction or relocation leaving P6 inoperable for some reason?
