Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart – Week 2019/17–439

De mol mag dan vast zitten op Mars, de seismometer doet daarentegen zijn werk, me de registratie van een eerste Marsbeving. Dichter bij huis wordt er in afwachting van meer details verder gespeculeerd over de ontploffing van de Crew Dragon tijdens een test met de SuperDraco’s. Dat en nog veel veel meer in het Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart van deze week.
