Caption: Propellant tank for a satellite wrapped in insulating foil, otherwise known as multi-layer insulation (MLI). This helps to maintain the temperature of the propellant independent of the external temperature, which may be anywhere between about 200 degrees and minus 150 degrees Celsius. Photographed at the 2009 Paris Air Show.
