Full scale thermal simulator development for the solar probe plus thermal protection system

Solar Probe Plus (SPP) is a NASA mission that will go within ten Solar Radii of the sun. One of the crucial technologies in this system is the Thermal Protection System (TPS), which shields the spacecraft from the sun. The TPS is made up of carbon-foam sandwiched between two carbon-carbon panels, and is approximately eight feet in diameter and 4.5 inches thick. At its closest approach, the front surface of the TPS is expected to reach 1200°C, but the foam will dissipate the heat so the back surface will only be about 300 ...

Solar Probe Plus mission overview

Solar Probe Plus will be the first mission to pass into the solar corona to study how the corona is heated and the solar wind is accelerated. Solving these two fundamental mysteries has been a top-priority science goal for over five decades. The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory in Laurel, Maryland, is managing the mission for NASA s Living with a Star Program, including the development, build, and operation of the spacecraft. SPP will launch in 2018, performing 24 orbits of the Sun over a 7-year duration. ...

Combined effect of high temperature and VUV radiation on carbon-based materials

For the next exploration of the sun, missions like Solar Probe+ (NASA) or Phoibos (ESA) will be launched to answer to fundamental questions on the solar corona heating and solar winds origin. Such solar probes missions that will pass very close to the sun, respectively at 9.5 and 4 solar radii (Rs), need thermal shield to protect the payload and the instrumentation. Carbon/carbon composites can withstand the severe environment encountered during the pass of the sun and have to be studied to understand their physico-chemical ...
