Hello everyone,

I'm currently a student in an Aeronautic School in Paris, France. I would like to know if one of you knows some stuff about Radio Isotopic Heater (RHU - Radioisotopic Heat Unit) to heat component during cold nights in space or lunar missions (mainly electronic components) and about thermal regulation of spacecrafts. I know how RHU works but I can't find on internet how to implement them in a functional Rover, how to diffuse heat to others component (by heat pipe, by radiation ?) and a concrete example or illustration of some RHU in work. It keeps being pretty abstract for the moment...!

Everything could help me, thank you !
