Reel Times: Whiskering

In this episode of Reel Times, Carrie discusses wiskering with Maria Calia, the Space Program Manager, on Reel Times. Wiskering, a phenomenon where metal conductive hairs (like tin whiskers) bridge electronic components, leading to shorts and failures, has been known since the 1940s but gained attention during the space shuttle era. Times Microwave Systems avoids materials prone to wiskering, such as pure tin, following standards set by organizations like NASA and the European Space Agency.
