Is there a mass spectrometer in there or is that in front of the faraday cup?
I am more wondering HOW you make the electronics work....at what, 2500 deg F? What type of solder can you use, for instance, to hold the electronic parts onto some sort of circuit board? How does an RF transmitter generate enough power to send data back to earth at THAT temperature....heck my IPhone will not turn on if i leave it in the sun inside my car!
That's what the heat shield is for, it keeps the radiant energy from pushing the electronics out of their operating temperature range. there's also some solar powered liquid cooling going on, but i have no knowledge of that system. My recollection (i delivered my stuff almost 3 years ago for integration into the probe) is that my board stays well below 100C. As someone else said, space is cold, since it's a near vacuum. If the solar energy doesn't hit, it doesn't heat. Keep in mind, I'm just an engineer, not a scientist ...
The cup itself, not the electronics, is designed for around 800C.
There are two electrostatic analyzers (SPAN-1 and SPAN-2) along with the faraday cup (SPC, Solar Probe Cup). I don't know anything about those. The SPC uses an electrically excited wire mesh in front of the cup to select/filter what hits the surfaces based on particle energies. It periodically steps through a variety of energies to discriminate the type and density of particular species (alfa, electron, proton). The electrodes are arranged such that we can also determine the direction from which the particles enter the cup, so the physicists get vectors, not just scalars.
The next probe looks pretty cool, too. It's still in planning, but it'll probably be an array of cups, so the pointy heads can characterize gradients, turbulence, etc. Kind of like what meteorologists do for weather forecasts.
We use big-ass magnets for mass analysis - I work on ion implanters.
Does Maura know about this loophole??? Think of the Children!
But does it measure up to a Sig?
Woman at 9:49 is a keeper.
HAHA, yeah I thought the same. Heres another
That was an awesome tip!
I would never have thought of using chocolate chip cookie dough for the crust. I always use those graham cracker shells for cream pies!
Extreme Banana Cream Pie
Thats the one. I saved from somewhere else but it shows up as a tiny, illegible strip. I have to open it in MS Paint to get it to show up at a normal size, so Ive been cutting and pasting the more interesting ones cuz its kinda a pain in the ass (and Im lazy and a bit of a retard when it comes to tech related stuff).
Whoever created it messed up, no space between cream and pie lol
And nothing is oozing.
Since we're posting high school photos of famous musicians, I thought I'd throw this in here.
However, there's nothing funny about it except the curl in his hair, he looks completely normal by 1958 standards, especially when compared to all of the others.
Sacha Baron Cohen? Im surprised they let them grow a stache back then.
Weasels ripped his flesh
See, and we all thought these California politicians were stuck up #MeToo types of people!
Sheesh, they like titties, just like all of us guys!
Maybe she’s breast feeding him
Is that just a sepia tone photograph or has he been eating yellow snow? Possibly a prewarning photo...
i would need more "evidence" to be sure.
I did this exact same thing with a branch that was buried in the mud. On my azz in no time
