Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart – Week 2019/52–472

De laatste week van het jaar eindigde – na de problemen met Starliner – toch nog met twee positieve verhalen. Er is uiteraard de Amerikaanse astronaute Koch die bezig is met een nieuw duurrecord in de ruimte te vestigen. En voor de Chinezen was er de geslaagde lancering van een Lange Mars 5. Belangrijk voor hetgeen er voor China in 2020 op het programma staat. Dat en nog veel meer in het Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart van deze week. Nog een gelukkig nieuw jaar gewenst.
