Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart – Week 2020/47–520

Ruimtevaart heeft zo zijn ups en downs. Een “up” was er voor NASA en SpaceX met een geslaagde Crew 1-lancering en een eveneens geslaagde koppeling met het ruimtestation. Voor ESA en Arianespace was het eerder een “down” met het verlies van een Vega-raket en zijn twee satellieten. Dat en nog veel meer in het Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart van deze week.
