Spacecraft is not like an aircraft that will fly up high in the air and will land somewhere on the land from one place to another. The spacecraft has a bigger role to do, and it is something that will pass through the outer layer of the earth, which is the atmosphere. It needs to be a strong shuttle in which people and machines can stay strong without any type of doubt and from which one can gain multiple achievements for which they are launching it. One of the important aspect while creation of the spacecraft is to consider the techniques for spacecraft thermal control in the space shuttle.
Yes, it is highly important that temperature is maintained carefully in the spacecraft. Only after this, a person gets the chance to travel from one place to another using it. The theory behind it is that the spacecraft will have to travel a large distance that will also include extreme temperature in it. So, it becomes the duty of the spacecraft thermal control systems to fight the odds and maintain the temperature in the spacecraft.
Factors that matter
Here are some of the factors that are important for the heat transfer and spacecraft thermal control in the spacecraft mentioned below:-
- Conductivity in response to size and shape:- It is to consider whether the thermal material that is used is heavy or not? And is able to conduct the task for which it is made or not. So, thermal conductivity is one of the main reasons that is kept in mind while selecting it.
- The thermal control design:- Well, the design in which the thermal control system is added in the spacecraft also plays an important role. It can be active or passive as per the requirement. That means self-cooling or passive means stable in nature.
