Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart – Week 2018/48– 417

Mocht je het nog niet weten, er staat een nieuwe lander op Mars! Met InSight gaan we deze keer in de planeet “kijken”. En naast enkele lanceringen worden het opnieuw drukke tijden voor het ISS, met alweer een nieuwe bevoorradingsvlucht en de komst van 3 bemanningsleden. 

Begin volgend jaar is er de eerste (onbemande) testvlucht in kader van het Commercial Crew programma. De NASA maakte ook 9 mogelijke leveranciers bekend voor het  leveren van wetenschappelijke vrachtjes op het maanoppervlak ( Commercial Lunar Payload Delivery Services).

Dat en nog veel veel meer in het Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart van deze week.
