Why Gold is used in Satilites

Gold is used on connectors and contacts because it has excellent corrosion resistance, high electrical conductivity (only copper and silver are better) and, alloyed with small amounts of nickel or cobalt, has good wear resistance.

Satellites are wrapped in the golden color foils to protect it and its component from the extreme environmental conditions of the space. Most of the components in a satellite which are mostly electronics has to be maintained within a certain range of temperature to keep it working, beyond which the equipment might fail. Likewise the propellants has to be stored at a particular temperature to avoid its freezing. So this Multilayer Layer Insulation (MLI) provides an enclosure to avoid heat exchange with the outer space which may be at 2.7 K (-270.45 degree C). You may require active heaters, coolers, Optical solar reflectors and radiators also to get the complete thermal control. MLI’s are basically kapton layer outside and Mylar layer inside. Outside layer is golden in color to provide high reflectivity against solar radiation. It blocks significant amount of the radiation loads on the parts where radiation loads are undesirable. Inside layer has very low emissivity to minimize the heat leak in any direction. Conduction is the dominant property inside the enclosure to spread heat over the structure.

gold is used because of its multiple benefits in outer space. … Because of its excellent ability to reflect infrared light while letting in visible light, astronauts’ visors have a thin layer of gold on them to protect their eyes from unfiltered sunlight.

How Is Iron Made?

Iron on Earth is made, or more properly extracted, from iron ore. The “rock” portion of iron ore contains oxygen, sands and clays in varying amounts depending on the type of ore.

Today, iron is made by heating hematite or magnetite in a blast furnace along with with a form of carbon called “coke” as well as calcium carbonate (CaCO3), better known as limestone. This yields a compound that contains about 3 percent carbon and other adulterants – not ideal in quality, but good enough to make steel. Every year, about 1.3 billion metric tons (roughly 1.43 billion U.S. tons, or nearly 3 trillion pounds) of crude steel are produced around the globe.

Iron has been known to humankind since about 3500 B.C., or over 5,500 years ago. Its name is derived from the Anglo-Saxon version, which was “iren.” The periodic table iron symbol Fe comes from the Latin word for iron, which is ferrum.

In Shanti Parva of the epic Mahabharata, Saraswati is called the mother of the Vedas, and later as the celestial creative symphony who appeared when Brahma created the universe.

Devi Saraswati was initially a river goddess in early texts like the Rigveda. She was the personification of the Saraswati river, which is a symbol of purity.[29] The story of Devi Saraswati:

In some texts, it is written that once there was a terrible battle between the Bhargavas and Hehayas, and from this an all-consuming fire called Vadavagni was born which could destroy the whole world. The devas were worried and they went to Shiva. Shiva suggested that they should go to Saraswati for help as she can become a river and immerse the Vadavagni in the ocean. All the devas and devis went to Saraswati and requested her to protect the universe. She said that she would only agree if her disciple, Bramha told her to do so. Then they all went to Bramha and Bramha told Saraswati to become a river. Saraswati agreed and left Brahmaloka and arrived at sage uttanka’s ashram. There she met Shiva. He gave the Vadavagni in a pot to Saraswati and told her to originate from Plaksha tree. Saraswati merged with the tree and transformed into a river. From there she flowed towards Pushkar
