Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart – Week 2019/20–442

Met de mogelijke terugkeer van mensen op de maan in 2024 is onze naaste buur het middelpunt van de belangstelling. Artemis is de naam van het nieuwe programma. Artemis was het zusje van Apollo. En laat het nu toch wel 50 jaar geleden zijn dat de vlucht van Apollo 10 plaats had. En extra aandacht voor de maan is er door Chang’e 4, Beresheet en LRO. Onze aarde wordt ook niet vergeten, o.a. door ESA’s Living Planet Symposium. Met een mooi overzicht van het hedendaags aardonderzoek. Dat en veel meer in het Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart van deze week.

Bij de foto: De Apollo 10 maanlander daalde tot een 15 km boven het maanoppervlak om dan terug te keren naar de Apollo Command & Service Module.
