Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart – Week 2019/40–460

Er was misschien geen echte uitschieter deze week, maar dat wil niet zeggen dat er niks gebeurd is. Zoals in het ruimtestation. Een Europese astronaut is er nu commandant. En de ruimtevaarder uit de Verenigde Arabische Emiraten is terug op Aarde. De Russen en de VAE praten al over een langere vlucht. Dat en nog veel meer in het Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart van deze week.
