At 800 square feet (75 square meters), the five-panel, cross-shaped solar arrays are the largest ever installed at JPL, which has built many spacecraft over the decades.
Question: What was/is the largest solar panel (by area) deployed anywhere in space?
"Bonus points:" If possible, are there separate records for
- below GEO
- above GEO (including cis-lunar and deep space)
Related, though by power and not area:
One of two solar arrays on NASA’s Psyche spacecraft is successfully deployed in JPL’s storied High Bay 2 clean room. The twin arrays will power the spacecraft and its science instruments during a mission to the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter. Credits: NASA/JPL-Caltech
