De Werkgroep Ruimtevaart groepeert VVS-leden die zich interesseren in de ruimtevaart. Anderzijds proberen we op allerlei manieren over ruimtevaart te vertellen en te schrijven.

Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart – Week 2018/17 – 389

Een hoogtepunt deze week was ongetwijfeld de publicatie van de tweede Gaia dataset. Er waren twee lanceringen. Met Sentinel 3B bouwt ESA het Copernicus-aardobservatiesysteem verder uit. Heel wat commotie was er in de US toen NASA de Resource Prosepctor schrapte. En ook voor Mars was er minder goed nieuws toen men een scheurtje ontdekte in het hitteschild van Mars2020. In Berlijn was er de ILA Air & Space Show waar heel wat nieuws te rapen viel, wat je terugvindt verspreid over deze "Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart". Maar ook deze week was er nog heel wat meer ... .
