Our team is currently investigating electronics survivability on the Moon. We are performing a test run on Kapton heaters of different wire gauges. The test run will begin with a lunar night cycle. The chamber will switch to a lunar day cycle after 24 hours and we will attempt to revive the heaters by supplying current. If the heaters are able to revive at that time, we will continue the test run with longer night cycles. The test will conclude with a lunar night cycle of a full two weeks, the actual length of a lunar night.
