Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart – Week 2020/34–507

Terwijl SpaceX een nieuwe 150 meter hop aan het voorbereiden is, deze keer met SN6, wordt er ook elders gehopt. Meer bepaald in China waar LinkSpace een 300 meter hop deed. Mooi om te zien, maar ook hier is nog een lange weg af te leggen tot er daadwerkelijk een volwaardige raket in een baan om de aarde komt. En het ISS lekt. Dat, en nog veel meer, in het Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart van deze week.
