Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart – Week 2018/39– 409

Eén van de uitschieters deze week was ongetwijfeld de keuze van de Blue Origin motor BE-4 voor de Vulcan-motor. Alsook de honderdste (!) Ariane V-lancering. Maar hét hoogepunt van de week waren toch de foto’s afkomstig van de twee Japanse Minerva-landers op de planetoïde Ryugu. Gewoon mega graaf.
