Vanderbilt group to tackle extreme conditions in space

Jun. 3, 2005—Unlike the spectacular movie version, real-life sun storms can’t turn ordinary astronauts into the Fantastic Four. But they can and occasionally do incapacitate expensive and vitally important space systems, like satellites and spacecraft. Sun storms aren’t the only thing space-faring equipment has to cope with. When you throw in the extreme temperatures in space on...
