Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart – Week 2021/19–546

Kritiek en bewondering, het ligt soms heel dicht bij elkaar. China kreeg naar zijn voeten voor het ongecontroleerd laten vallen van de CZ5B-rakettrap, maar enkele dagen was er applaus voor een geslaagde Marslanding. En dat bij hun eerste poging. Verbazing was er in zekere zin de laatste tijd met de aankondiging van al die toeristische ruimtevluchten en filmplannen. Nieuwsgierig zijn we ook nu we uitkijken naar een mogelijke tweede vlucht van Starship SN15 en een eerste orbitale lancering – wie weet dit jaar al. Dat en nog veel meer in het Nieuws Uit de Ruimtevaart van deze week.

Bij de foto: Niet Tom Cruise maar Yulia Peresild zal de eerste hoofdrol spelen voor een film opgenomen in het ruimtestation. Ze werd deze week door Roscosmos uitverkoren. De film kreeg (voorlopig) de naam “The Challenge”. Foto: Roscosmos.
