Hi Gang,

Ever wondered how satellites that are Solar orbiters manage to endure the heat. Well just take a look at this page by the ESA science team to show that it takes a great deal of trial and error before they get it just right. It is fascinating reading and well worth a ten minute trip to the webpage. Take a look at the story here http://www.esa.int/Our_Activities/Space_Engineering_Technology/Heated_testing_for_Solar_Orbiter_antenna_coating
