Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart – Week 2020/40–513

Deze week samenvatten zou ik eigenlijk moeten uitstellen tot volgende week. Want zowat alle Amerikaanse lanceringen hadden de afgelopen dagen te kampen met uitstel, uitstel en nog eens uitstel. Vooral in Florida raakte geen raket meer van de grond. Dat en nog veel meer in het Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart.

Bij de foto: De lancering van Antares was de enige Amerikaanse raket die deze week van de grond kwam. Twee Falcon 9 raketten en een Delta IV Heavy moesten om een combinatie van allerlei redenen blijven staan. Foto: NASA/Patrick Black.
