Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart – Week 2019/27–449

Het begint op te vallen. De 50ste verjaardag van de eerste maanlanding komt onmiskenbaar dichterbij. De helft van deze Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart is dan ook gevuld met Apollo-toestanden. De volgende twee weekends ga je het dan ook zonder NUDR moeten doen. De reden vind je onderaan dit exemplaar. 

Een prettige vakantie en vooral veel plezier met al wat er gebeurt rond 50 jaar Apollo.
