Extreme temperature thermal vacuum testing of the solar probe plus radiator

The Solar Probe Plus (SPP) spacecraft is equipped with four thermal radiators as part of the solar array cooling system. This cooling system rejects the heat absorbed by two high heat flux solar arrays. Each thermal radiator is comprised of nine aluminum radiation fins that are bonded with epoxy to titanium tubes. These tubes are connected together via inlet and outlet manifolds to create each radiator assembly. The solar arrays are cooled by micro-channel-etched titanium plates through which the working fluid, water, is for ...
