Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart – Week 2020/42–515

Er mag dan een nieuwe bemanning in het ISS zijn toegekomen, er mag dan een verjaardag op komst zijn (20 jaar ISS continu bemand), het lijkt of het ISS wat met kwaaltjes kampt. Het lek lijkt men stilaan onder controle te hebben, maar nu laat een Russische zuurstofgenerator het afweten. En hier op Aarde lijkt het niet echt te boteren tussen Rogozin, het hoofd van het Russische ruimtevaartagentschap en (een deel van) de kosmonauten. Rusland lijkt ook niet echt geneigd te zijn om mee te werken aan de Gateway, dat mini-ruimtestation in een baan om de Maan. Het Europese ruimtevaartagentschap ESA gaf dan weer een update over haar Gateway-plannen. Maar ook over bijvoorbeeld Mars Sample Return. Dat en nog veel, veel meer (meer dan 30 hoofdstukjes) in het Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart van deze week.
