The Tesla car being recently shot into space made me wonder about the reliability of common electronic components in hard vacuum. I'm asking about the kind of components you would find in Musks's car-turned-stellar object, not specific components designed for space applications. This is an "out of curiosity" question, I don't intend to build a spaceworthy roadster in my garage.
Would electrolytic capacitors lose their electrolyte and dry up?
Would LiIon batteries' pressure release safety valves pop?
Would chips popcorn due to moisture evaporating in vacuum?
Would the LCD's liquid crystals evaporate?
Obviously, air-cooling of electronics would no longer work.
Radiation would zap CPUs and RAM...
The evaporation of axle grease and coolant shouldn't matter that much due to lack of roads...
"Amateurs" have been shooting GoPros and other electronics into space for a while now, and it seems to work, at least for a few minutes. Still, the camera on the Tesla didn't last very long (just a few hours).
What could have failed first in that camera?...
