The present invention provides a thermal, and if desired, a radiation barrier to protect the exterior surface of a spacecraft. In particular, the present invention protects the polymeric materials of construction utilized in inflatable and expandable spacecraft from the deleterious effects of both thermal and radiation aging. The protective barrier is formed from a tube or tubes through which a fluid circulates. The tube segment substantially enclose the spacecraft, and in particular, the critical layers that are desired to be protected. This protective ...
1. Apparatus for spacecraft thermal management comprising:a. a thermal radiator to reject heat; b. a pump, said pump having a first port and a second port, the first port of said pump connected to said thermal radiator; c. a tube, said tube substantially covering a surface of the spacecraft, one end of said tube connected to the second port of said pump, the other end of said tube connected to said thermal radiator, said tube, said thermal radiator, and said pump in fluid communication to form a continuous fluid flow loop, and d. a fluid, said pump circu...
