Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart – Week 2020/48–521

Deze week was het een maan-week. Met de lancering van Chang’e 5 begint China aan een belangrijke missie: het ophalen van een bodemmonster bij onze naaste buur. Als het lukt, een primeur voor China, en de eerste keer sinds 1976. Je kan de vlucht van Chang'e-5 ook bekijken als een voorbereiding op een eerste Chinese bemande maanlanding. In de Verenigde Staten staan ook een aantal Maan-gerelateerde gebeurtenissen op het programma. In december zouden de laatste twee stappen in de SLS Green Run Test moeten plaats hebben. En (bijna) iedereen kijkt ongetwijfeld uit naar de 15 km vlucht van Starship SN8. Dat en nog veel meer in het Nieuws Van De Ruimtevaart van deze week.
