@HTVX_JAXA A deployment test of the solar array paddle for HTV-X1 was conducted! The KOUNOTORI had solar cells attached to the entire fuselage, but the HTV-X uses deployable solar cell paddles 🐥 While consolidating the power generation function into the service module, a large power generation area is secured
