Operating in the challenging environment of space, satellites contend with extreme temperature fluctuations, radiation exposure, and the vacuum of the cosmos. Essential for fortifying these satellites against such harsh conditions and ensuring their longevity, Multi-Layer Insulation (MLI) emerges as a key protective measure. This thermal insulation method, comprised of reflective foil layers separated by low-conductance spacer materials, plays a pivotal role in regulating temperature and maintaining the resilience of satellites in the unpredictable realm of [...]
