De Werkgroep Ruimtevaart groepeert VVS-leden die zich interesseren in de ruimtevaart. Anderzijds proberen we op allerlei manieren over ruimtevaart te vertellen en te schrijven.

Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart – Week 2021/07–534

Er was afgelopen week geen ontsnappen aan de gebeurtenissen rond planeet Mars. Met als hoogtepunt Perseverance die de 7 verschrikkelijke minuten doorstond om zich met succes zachtjes neer te zetten op het oppervlak van de Rode Planeet. Qua pr was het verschil met de Chinese Tianwen-1 opmerkelijk. Er was zo goed als geen informatie over de Mars Orbit Insertion van Tianwen-1 (tenzij een beetje na de feiten), met Mars2020 werden we overspoeld met filmpjes en artikels. En dat is uiteraard te merken aan deze NUDR. Maar er gebeurde meer afgelopen week, zoals de lancering van twee bevoorradingscapsules naar het ISS. Waarbij Progress wat problemen kende om zich te koppelen. Uitkijken doen we naar de nieuwe SLS Core Stage Hot Fire. Anderen bleven wellicht op hun honger zitten, met het slechte weer in Texas blijft het wachten op een Static Fire van SN10. Dat en nog veel meer in het Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart van deze week.

Bij de foto: Dit was niet de eerste foto die werd ontvangen, maar het is tot nu toe de meest indrukwekkende. De foto toont Perseverance terwijl het door de SkyCrane en de Descent Stage naar het Marsoppervlak gebracht wordt. Duimen maar dat we de volgende dagen meer van dit soort foto’s mogen zien.
