Reducing Satellite Battery Debris Threat
2014-03-13 14:19:05

ESA Across a satellite’s working life, batteries keep the craft’s heart beating whenever it leaves sunlight. But after its mission ends, those same batteries may threaten catastrophe. Space debris mitigation rules require the complete deactivation of electrical power sources aboard a satellite on retirement, in order to guard against explosive accidents that might produce fresh debris dangerous to other satellites. Now a new study by ESA’s Clean Space initiative – tasked with...

New Technology Means Cheaper Solar Panels
2013-02-13 19:36:22

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Solar cells are nothing new, but what may be coming is a technology to make a less expensive version of them. Silicon is used in both computer chips and solar cells, and both require a surface coating before use. This coating requires a lot of heat and energy to run in a passivation process, making it a costly step. A group of MIT researchers wrote in the journal Advanced Materials they have found a way to passivate silicon at...

By Rajesh, Puspalata Kumar, Padma S; Suresh, Sumathi; Chandran, Sinu; Et al Type 304 stainless steel and carbon steel are extensively used as structural materials in the reactor coolant systems of nuclear power plants. The corrosion of these structural materials during normal operation and the subsequent neutron activation of their corrosion products leads to the build-up of radiation on the out-of-core surfaces of the coolant systems. The Dilute Chemical Decontamination (DCD) process Is...
