Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart – Week 2020/10–483

Na Spirit, Opportunity en Curiosity blijft NASA volhouden me tdit soort van namen voor hun Marsrovers. Mars2020 wordt dus Perseverance. Of er deze zomer ook een Europese Marsrover vertrekt, wel, de kans daartoe wordt steeds kleiner. Qua lanceringen vertrok er een Dragon-bevoorradingscapsule naar het ISS, maar deze week werd gekenmerkt door drie lanceringen die niet doorgingen. En wat het ISS betreft, daar werd een nieuwe experiment geïnstalleerd dat door het B.USOC vanuit Ukkel zal opgevolgd worden. Dat en nog veel meer in het Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart van deze week.

Bij de foto: Het Europese ruimtevaartagentschap worstelt nog steeds met de parachutes voor hun ExoMars-lander Rosalind Franklin. Wat de kans groter maakt dat de lancering van de Europese Marssonde met twee jaar zal uitgesteld worden. Meer duidelijk zou er in de loop van deze week komen. Foto: ESA.
