Caption: Satellite construction. Mylar insulation being added to a satellite during its construction. This material, also known as polyethylene terphthalate (BoPET) polyester, ensures electrical and thermal insulation in both the hot and cold environments found in space, and also helps the spacecraft radiate away excess heat. Photographed at the EADS (European Aeronautic Defense and Space Company) Astrium site in Toulouse, France.
