The easiest way is through raw thrust. You can dump heat by expelling it
through veniers used in movement and attitude adjustment. You can also pass
coolant through hot spots and then run it in contact with the outer skin of
the vehicle, usually in areas where the most surface area is available, like
fins or wings.
