Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart – Week 2021/36–563

De kogel is door de kerk. Niets is uiteraard zeker maar het lijkt er toch op dat voor het laatst een lanceerdatum is vastgelegd voor de James Webb Space Telescope. Het wordt 18 december 2021. Een week voor Kerstmis. Voor de vier bemanningsleden van Inspiration4 wordt het een dagje langer wachten op hun lancering. Voor de Amerikanen gaat die door ‘s avonds in prime time, voor ons wordt dat dus spijtig genoeg 2 uur ‘s nachts. En in het ISS was het deze weer stressen. Deze keer was er rookalarm. Dat en nog veel meer in het Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart van deze week.
