gases, such as hydrogen and oxygen, for  rocket engines must have the ability to not  only open and close but also to adjust flow  rates at low temperatures.  Quality control engineers need to be able to replicate the environment of space in order to ensure that equipment designed for satellites will function reliably before they go into space.  Likewise, observatories using supercooled equipment to capture spectral images of stars need scanners and other equipment with sophisticated control systems that, at least in part, operate in cryogenic conditions…
