Hi Mark and the gang,
If I'm not mistaken, I think the reaction wheels are spun up sometime before 
panel deploy.  So, that I think would be one big event you might detect in 
telemetry sometime prior to release of the panels.  I too am eager to hear 
good news in either case.
Like so many of us, I'd like to offer my thanks and encouragement to the 
command team.  It's been one hell of an exciting ride so far and I'm sure we 
ain't seen nothin yet.

73, Steve
