    Of the plastic coverings before going into space. Outgassing is a
    plastic problem. With Hasselblad,
    they replaced the black plastic with silver metal panels.

    Outgassing seems to be one of your problems as well ;-)

  3. Sigh. Enough is enough.

    Just SHUT UP. Having a high posting statistic means NOTHING.

    (Which is, in an astonishing coincidence worthy of the Hitchhiker's
    Guide, almost *exactly equal* to the useful content of this post.)

    And the answer to your question is of course, 42.

    (I realise I am going to evoke a response, which therefore will - in
    some insane way - encourage him.. but I shall to try to refrain from
    biting on future Rich-scraps.)

  4. A simple remedy to eradicate the RichPlasticNutter virus from your newsgroup
    access - if you use Outlook Express, just select his most recent annoying
    message, then look at the message options in Outlook Express, then select
    'Block Sender', that message and all previous messages generated by this
    nasty little virus will be deleted forever!

  5. Its not such an easy remedy as you make out because people like you keep
    answering and repeating the original post so we still have to put up with

    The people replying to him have chosen deliberately to reply to him.
    They'd miss him dreadfully if he wasn't around, obviously. He's been
    here for years, apparently.

    Ah, but if you use Mozilla Thunderbird you can select the message and
    just type a 'k'. This will ignore the whole thread thus eliminating it
    from you view no matter how many replies - like this one.

    I see no mention of replacement of plastic parts as a result
    of outgassing problems. Please post a link to your source of
    this information.

    Rich is a plastic poster. He's just outgassing.

    We're waiting very patiently, Rich. Post a link about the *outgassing*
    - that's what your highly confident and knowledgable post was about,
    n'est ce pas?

    As far as I can see, and even that link you supplied backed it up, the
    only reasons were:

    "The Data Camera was given a silver finish to make it more resistant to
    thermal variations"
    "The Data Camera was modified to prevent accumulation of static

    I doubt the second had any bearing on the removal, but included it for
    completeness. So where's the 'outgassing' bit exactly?

    (Offtopic, and just so's this post isn't a complete waste of time..
    Isn't it totally weird how some words look misspelled - eg
    "Irrelevant"... and.. er.. "misspelled"...(O;)

    There's also the little matter that the link he posted refers to a camera
    used on the Apollo 11 mission, which was in 1969. Even if everything he
    said was true of that camera, it's quite a stretch from "NASA stripped one
    camera almost 40 years ago" to "NASA strips _all_ their cameras".

    Yes, the zero gravity, pure oxygen environments have changed SO much
    over the last 40 years, right?

    Nice Strawman, but now please give us all the reference for
    your claim that plastics were replaced with metal by NASA
    because of outgassing.

    A little knowledge is a dangerous thing.

    They are not in zero gravity, and they are not in pure oxygen.

    As for outgassing with cameras, try reading:

    But please don't try to give everyone else a headache.
