Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart – Week 2020/52–525

Het jaareinde lijkt niet meteen het meest positieve jaareinde voor Artemis en het Space Launch System. Het lijkt immers dat er (veel) minder geld zal zijn dan gevraagd voor het maanplan van de NASA. En de Green Run Test verloopt niet geheel volgens wens waardoor de laatste stap – de static fire – voor januari zal zijn. Ondertussen gaat SpaceX op zijn elan verder. SN9 staat op het lanceerplatform, hersteld én met drie motoren. Ook daar mogen we in januari vuurwerk verwachten. Hopelijk wel zonder de vuurbal van SN8. Dat en nog veel meer in het Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart van deze week.
