Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart – Week 2019/43–463

Uitschieters waren er deze week niet echt. De Maan blijft echter de rode draad in heel wat nieuwtjes. Steeds meer lanceerders worden klaar gemaakt om “iets” op de Maan te gaan afleveren. Firma’s zoeken elkaar op om zich samen kandidaat te stellen voor de bouw van een nieuwe bemande maanlander. En NASA kondigde alvast  een maanautootje aan dat nabij de zuidpool naar water moet gaan zoeken. Dat en nog veel meer in het Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart van deze week.
