RE: Space rated adhesives



The HST flew with the remains of some ordinary masking tape adhesive on the
frame.  It was used with the rather cavalier assumption that they would just
peal it off later.  However, it dried out, and it was deemed more of a
contamination hazard to fully remove.  That portion of the telescope was
vacuum baked out anyway before the electronics and optics were integrated,
but it was one of many oops by Perkin-Elmer.
