Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart – Week 2021/14–541

De lancering van Soyuz MS-18 start een soort van stoelendans aan boord van het ISS. De bemanning van Soyuz MS-17 zal later deze week het ISS verlaten, waarna een nieuwe Crew Dragon op zijn beurt vertrekt naar het ISS om de bemanning van Crew 1 af te lossen. Op Mars is het enkele dagen langer wachten op de eerst vlucht van Ingenuity en in Boca Chica werd Starship SN15 op het lanceerplatform geplaatst. Dat en nog veel meer in het Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart van deze week.
