Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart – Week 2020/51–524

Hayabusa-2 leverde ons net geen 6 gram aan Ryugu-bodemmonsters op, Chang’e 5 een 1,7 kg aan maanmateriaal.  Twee resultaten van niet alleen lang en veel werken, maar ook twee technologische hoogstandjes. Verder waren er deze week liefst 6 lanceringen, plus de geslaagde testvlucht van Astra en de minder geslaagde testvlucht van Virgin Galactic. Dat en – ook deze week – nog veel, veel meer in het Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart.
