Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart – Week 2021/10–537

Deze week wordt een belangrijke week voor het Artemis-programma. Met een tweede poging tot het uitvoeren van de Green Run Hot Fire. Of die eerste Artemis-lancering dit jaar nog gaat doorgaan is sowieso klein. Ondertussen worden ook buiten de Verenigde Staten plannen gesmeed voor de “verovering” van de Maan. Met China en Rusland die willen samen werken. En SpaceX gaat wellicht proberen om deze week SN11 een geslaagde landing te laten uitvoeren. Dat en nog veel meer in het Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart van deze week.

Bij de foto: Er lijkt voorlopig één constante te zijn dit jaar: Falcon 9 raketten die Starlink-satellieten lanceren. Zo was er op 11 maart een lancering. En terwijl deze aflevering van het Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart klaar wordt gemaakt voor publicatie, staat de volgende al klaar. Foto: SpaceX.
