Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart – Week 2019/39–459

Het werd weer een leuk ruimtevaartweekje. Alleen al de vijf lanceringen was mooi geweest. Maar er was ook heel wat beweging rond het ruimtestation, met de komst van 3 nieuwe bemanningsleden en een bevoorradingscapsule. Er zij nu 9 ruimtevaarders in het ISS. Maar het is (alweer) SpaceX dat met de grootste belangstelling gaat lopen. Met Elon Musk die een update geeft rond zijn Spaceship, met achter hem een blinkend prototype. Eerste lancering binnen de twee maanden.

Bij de foto: Het is een beetje onvermijdelijk, maar bij deze een foto van het Starship-prototype, met deze keer de kers op de taart. Een eerste lancering – aldus Musk – over minder dan twee maanden. Foto: SpaceX.
