I think the important point is not the 80% Nitrogen in the atmosphere, but the 
Oxygen/water vapour fraction which could cause corrosion if it were present in 
the cable. Allegedly. Injecting pure Nitrogen ought to ensure minimal corrosion.

However, we aren't sending a probe to the Moon or Mars, we just don't need that 
kind of reliability. It's only TV. I'll live with what I've got, thanks.
