Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart – Week 2020/49–522

Het is een vrij unieke periode. Deze maand arriveren hier immers twee sondes met bodemmonsters van een ander hemellichaam. De Japanse Hayabusa 2 bracht op 5  december materiaal van planetoïde Ryugu naar de Australische outback. En mid-december zal de Chinese Chang’e 5 met bodemmateriaal afkomstig van onze naaste buur landen in Binnen-Mongolië. En ten vroegste nu maandag gaat dan de langverwachte testvlucht van Starship SN8 van start. Dat en nog veel meer in het Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart van deze week.

Bij de foto: De landingsplaats van Chang’e 5. De vlucht lijkt een groot succes te worden voor de Chinese ruimtevaart. Enkel de terugkeer naar de Aarde moet nog afgevinkt worden. Bron: CNSA/CLEP.
