Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart – Week 2018/42– 411

Vijftig jaar geleden vlogen drie astronauten voor het eerst met een Apollo-capsule rond de Aarde. Na de brand met Apollo 1 verliep de vlucht met het vernieuwde ruimtetuig vlekkeloos. De deur naar de Maan zou door Apollo 8 in december van datzelfde jaar wagenwijd open gezet worden. Vijftig jaar later is er veel veranderd in de ruimtevaart. Maar blijven we met dezelfde problemen worstelen. Als de Russen uitgezocht hebben wat de problemen veroorzaakte met de lancering van een bemande Soyuz, weten we ook of het International Space Station bemand kan blijven, dan wel of het zonder bewoners moet achtergelaten worden. 

Europa lanceerde ondertussen een sonde naar Mercurius. Al duurt het nog wel even vooraleer de sonde in een baan rond de “boodschapper van de goden” zal terecht komen.
