Cryogenic Technology

An Indian Cyrocooler for Space Applications

Have you ever wondered how the images taken by the Hubble Space Telescope can reveal galaxies and stars which are many light years away? The Telescope itself is subject to intense cycles of hot and cold as it revolves around the earth, but seldom falters in its performance. The fantastic high resolution images taken by the Hubble telescope have Cryogenic Technology to thank, for keeping their imaging sensors working well.
