Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart – Week 2019/48–468

Het Europese ruimtevaartagentschap ESA krijgt voor de volgende drie jaar het gevraagde geld om zijn programma’s te realiseren. In deze NUDR krijg je dan ook uitgebreid de nodige informatie over de toekomstplannen van ESA. We breien er nog een extraatje aan vast met uitgebreid Belgisch ruimtevaartnieuws. Met o.a. een unieke cubesat die volgende week gelanceerd moet worden. Dat en nog veel meer in het Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart van deze week.
