De Werkgroep Ruimtevaart groepeert VVS-leden die zich interesseren in de ruimtevaart. Anderzijds proberen we op allerlei manieren over ruimtevaart te vertellen en te schrijven.

Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart – Week 2020/22–495

Uiteraard vind je hier meer dan voldoende informatie over Crew Dragon Demo 2. Niet vergeten dat er ook nog andere lanceringen waren. Naast twee geslaagde Chinese lanceringen waren er problemen voor Virgin Orbit met de eerste lancering van LauncherOne. SpaceX scoorde uiteraard met de geslaagde lancering en dito koppeling maar met Starship ging het wat minder. SN4 ontplofte na een aantal statische testen. Het eerste hopje zal nog wat langer op zich laten wachten.

Wat de berichtgeving rond Crew Dragon Demo 2 betreft, de filmpjes staan deze keer apart. Veel ander ruimtevaartnieuws is door tijdsgebrek verschoven naar de volgende NUDR. 

Bij de foto: Chris Cassidy (in het midden) heeft er even op moeten wachten. Maar uiteindelijk arriveerde de Crew Dragon Demo 2 dan toch met enkele dagen vertraging. De twee nieuwbakken bewoners van het ISS zijn wel diegenen die het meest blij lijken te zijn. Foto: NASA.
