Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart – Week 2020/53–526

Met nog twee lanceringen kwam het jaar 2020 aan het einde. Weinig uitschieters deze week, tenzij dan misschien Starship SN9. Sneller dan verwacht stond SN9 op het lanceerplatform. Zo snel dat sommigen het nog zagen vertrekken in 2020. Zo’n vaart liep het niet, maar 2021 begint alvast veelbelovend. Dat en nog veel meer in het Nieuws Uit de Ruimtevaart, de laatste editie van 2020. Tot in 2021.
