Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart – Week 2021/30–557

Na een geslaagde lancering vorig week bleef Nauka de aandacht naar zich toe trekken. Er waren uiteraard de problemen met het propulsiesysteem, er bleken problemen te zijn met het automatische rendez-vous en koppelingssysteem, maar dat leek zich allemaal op te lossen. Ondertussen maakte Pirs plaats bij het ISS zodat Nauka uiteindelijk zonder problemen met het ruimtestation kon koppelen. Maar dan liep het plots heel even heel erg fout. Dat en nog veel meer in het Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart.

Bij de foto: Nauka moet nog enkele meters afleggen vooraleer het met het ruimtestation kan koppelen. Foto NASA.
