Solar 60: Simulating the Deep Chill of Space

Downloads: Mobile SD HD

The Parker Solar Probe team needs to get the spacecraft into a deep cold environment, just like it will experience while in space. Johns Hopkins APL's Felipe Ruiz and Andy Webb describe how the thermal vacuum chamber at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center creates the intense cold temps - and there's a humorous exaggeration in the explanation that true science-fiction-comedy film fans will catch!
