    One of the clubs I belong to, recently had a professor who works part time for NASA on deep space probes give us a talk.
    He explained whether people know it or not, almost every probe out there has a Radioisotope Heater Unit to keep the electronic equipment warm.
    Mounts: EQ1, LXD55, Atlas EQ-G (one with Rowan belt mod, EQ6-Rail and one without)

    Good article. Like many other things we need to infuse some common sense in our decisions...
