LTMPF Team Scavenges Parts from the Previous Low Temperature Flight Facility

The Charged Particle Monitors and the Baroswitch from the low temperature flight apparatus for the earlier shuttle flights have been removed and are now stored in the LTMPF lab for possible reverse engineering and reuse on the LTMPF mission 1. The manufacturer of the baroswitch, Leybold Corporation, has confirmed that the switch is still available and can be purchased set at the applicable opening pressure of 6 Torr that was used for the Shuttle flights.
