Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart – Week 2019/26–448

Gelukkig zijn er nog sondes zoals Curiosity. Gelukkig zijn er nog nieuwe plannen voor bijvoorbeeld Titan. En ja, tussendoor vertrekt er al eens een bemanning bij het ISS om plaats te maken voor een nieuwe. En worden er nog navigatiesatellieten en cubesasts gelanceerd. Maar verder zuigt de maan (om allerlei redenen) steeds meer de aandacht naar zich toe. Dat en nog een beetje meer in het Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart van deze week.
