Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart – Week 2021/16–543

Perseverance moet op Mars nog aan het echte werk beginnen, maar in afwachting daarvan verzorgde Ingenuity de show. Ondertussen voerde het helikoptertje al twee vluchten uit en een derde is in voorbereiding. Ook het MOXIE-instrument liet (figuurlijk) van zich horen en produceerde voor het eerst (een beetje) zuurstof. Nog lang niet genoeg voor een Starship bij te tanken, maar men moet ergens beginnen.

Verder stond deze week het ruimtestation in de kijker. Niet alleen met de komst van Crew Dragon Crew 2 maar ook door het bericht dat de Russen van plan lijken te zijn om in 2025 het ISS te verlaten. Dat en nog veel meer in het Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart van deze week.
