      When I realise that building regular Earth electronics was just … boring.

      In space, we large vibrations on the rocket and then when you are there – we have low / high temperatures as we go in and out of the Sun’s view. We have a near 0 vacuum and, worst of all, we have ALL the radiation that our star (the Sun) can throw at us. So our electronics needs to be super robust to errors and problems.
