Engineers Refine Thermal Protection System for Orion’s Next Mission
When it comes to a spacecraft enduring the extremely hot and fast journey from deep space back to Earth, NASA's Orion can withstand the heat. Engineers developing Orion's thermal protection system have been improving the spacecraft's heat shield design and manufacturing process since the vehicle successfully traveled to space for the first time last year. They are now enhancing the overall system in advance of the spacecraft's next mission - a flight that will put Orion through the harshest set of conditions yet.
For these future Orion missions, a silver, metallic-based thermal control coating will also be bonded to the crew module's thermal protection system back shell tiles. The coating, similar to what is used on the main heat shield, will reduce heat loss during phases when Orion is pointed to space and therefore experiencing cold temperatures, as well as limit the high temperatures the crew module will be subjected to when the spacecraft faces the sun. The coating will help Orion's back shell maintain a temperature range from approximately -150 to 550 degrees Fahrenheit prior to entry and also will protect against electrical surface charges in space and during re-entry. <more>
