Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart – Week 2021/09–536

Deze week was er uiteraard Mars. Deze week was er uiteraard Starship SN10. Maar deze week was er ook heel wat te rapen over ruimtevluchten van en voor toeristen. Zoals Dear Moon, Axiom Ax1 en Inspiration4. Maar ook over ruimtehotels en andere commerciële ruimtestations. NASA paste zijn prijzen voor onderzoek aan boord van het ISS (nogal serieus) aan. En steeds dichterbij komt de eerste lancering in kader van het Chinese ruimtestation. Dat en – écht waar – nog veel meer in het Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart van deze week.
