Electronics interconnections for extreme space environments

13 October, 2003

If all goes as planned, two rovers named Spirit and Opportunity will explore the surface of Mars next year, gathering geologic information and beaming the results back to Earth. However, the environment is so extreme that the rovers will be equipped with heaters to keep the electronic gear warm enough to operate properly as temperatures can dip to -120 degrees C. Futures space probes will involve even more extreme environments, with temperatures as high as 460 degrees Celsius on Venus and as low as -180 Celsius on Titan, the largest moon of Saturn.
