Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart – Week 2019/24–446

Apollo en Artemis. U zal er ongetwijfeld de volgende weken nog veel over te lezen krijgen. Over Apollo omdat het uiteraard 50 jaar geleden is dat Armstrong en Aldrin als eersten op de maan rondwandelden. Over Artemis omdat het weldra duidelijk zal zijn of het Amerikaanse Congress de rekening wil betalen. Kostprijs ? Een 30 miljard dollar te spreiden over vijf jaar. Dat en nog veel meer in het Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart van deze week.

Bij de foto: Een beeld uit 2024 ? Een Orion-capsule arriveert bij de mini-Gateway in een baan om de maan, waar de maanlander wacht om opnieuw Amerikanen op het oppervlak van onze naaste buur te zetten..
