The design of space stations like the recently launched ISS is a highly complex and interdisciplinary task. This book describes component technologies, system integration, and the potential usage of space stations in general and of the ISS in particular. It so adresses students and engineers in space technology. Ernst Messerschmid holds the chair of space systems at the University of Stuttgart and was one of the first German astronauts.This can be reduced by advance vacuum-baking of the external materials (e.g. silicone sealants). ... of the Pay- load Attached Structure was examined with the help of a simulation called aquot;Direct Simulation Monte-Carloaquot; (DSMC). ... Figure 3.42 shows the isolines of the particle densities during the operation of the thruster.
