Thermal management in satellites

  1. Aug 6, 2014 #1
    How effective are the thermal management techniques in satellites? What kind thermal loads can they support? And I take it that while conduction can be used to transfer heat from one area of the satellite to another, that the ultimate limiting factor is the amount that it can dissipate as radiation?
