Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart – Week 2020/44–517

Twintig jaar. Twintig jaar dat ruimtevaarders van Roscosmos, NASA, ESA, JAXA en CSA samen gewoond en gewerkt hebben in het International Space Station. Het is in zekere zin bijna onvoorstelbaar. En toch. En toch willen ze nog 10 jaar verder. Ongetwijfeld dat de volgende dagen nog heel wat gepraat gaat worden over deze verjaardag. Net als het feit dat de volgende jaren ook gewerkt gaat worden aan de Gateway, een mini-station, de toekomstige tussenstap naar de Maan.

Ondertussen trekken onbemande ruimtesondes onvermoeid verder het zonnestelsel in. Met nieuws over Venus, de Maan, Mars en Jupiter, maar ook over kometen en planetoïden.

Dat en nog veel meer in het Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart van deze week.
