SPACE VEHICLE HIGHLIGHT
Thermal testing of the three window assemblies in Probe B has been completed. One Watt of heat was passed into each assembly, and the temperature change on the outer heat station ring measured. This test gives baseline data for the desired Probe C response after repairs are complete.
