A satellite with a low surface emissivity and a large absorptivity is put into space with an initial temperature of 50 K. The satellite is irradiated by the sun, and

the near vacuum of space has a temperature of about 2 K. What happens to the temperature of the satellite over time? O Increases slowly at first, and then decreases O Asymptotically reduces to a temperature between 2 and 50 K O Increases O Asymptotically reduces to 2 K O Remains constant
