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 2020/37–510

Deze week was niet de week van raketten. De Astra-lancering mislukte net als die van de Chinese Kuaizhou. De ontwikkeling van de nieuwe Japanse H-III kent problemen en een eerste lancering is niet meer voor dit jaar. En wat we al enkele weken zagen aankomen, is nu ook officieel. Er komt geen OmegA-raket. Ook de liefhebbers van de Falcon Heavy moeten nog wat op hun honger blijven zitten want de eerstvolgende lancering is ook niet meer dit jaar. Dat en nog veel meer in het Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart van deze week. O ja, op het einde van deze NUDR laten we de familie De Winne nog even aan het woord.


Bij de foto: De jaren die volgen zullen we heel wat nieuwe raketten zien. De OmegA-raket zal er niet bij zijn. Northrop Grumman besliste om de raket niet langer te ontwikkelen toen ze naast het National Security Space Launch contract grepen. Foto: Northrop Grumman.
