De Werkgroep Ruimtevaart groepeert VVS-leden die zich interesseren in de ruimtevaart. Anderzijds proberen we op allerlei manieren over ruimtevaart te vertellen en te schrijven.

Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart – Week 2021/22–549

Het ISS blijft voorlopig één van de belangrijkste bemande ruimtevaartprogramma’s. Met de levering van nieuwe zonnepanelen en met een op komst zijnde nieuwe Russische module zal er meer dan genoeg werk zijn voor de zevenkoppige bemanning van het ruimtestation. Het ruimtestation lijkt ook het centrum te gaan worden van het orbitale ruimtetoerisme, nu Axiom extra vluchten heeft vastgelegd. Maar er beweegt meer in de bemande ruimtevaart. Zo verwachten we deze week de eerste bewoners in het Chinese ruimtestation. Rusland werkt aan plannen voor een eigen ruimtestation. China en Rusland lijken ook verder werk te maken van hun maanstation. En in Boca Chica wordt volop gewerkt aan de Orbital Launch Tower. Een lancering van een Starship in een baan om de Aarde … als dat dit jaar nog zou lukken zet SpaceX een belangrijke stap in de richting van de Maan (en Mars). Dat en nog veel meer in het Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart.

Bij de foto: Het ISS wordt wel vaker getroffen door micrometeorieten of door héél klein stukjes ruimteafval. Maar een recent “gat” in de robotarm van het ISS (blijkbaar zonder verdere schade) bleek wat meer fotogeniek te zijn. Het incident haalde de pers en overal werd het gevaar van het ruimteafval weer dik in de verf gezet. Maar of het allemaal veel zal helpen om het probleem op te lossen …  Foto: NASA/Canadian Space Agency.
