Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart – Week 2021/37–564

Deze week waren er twee items die er zo uitsprongen. Er was de terugkeer van de drie Chinezen die drie maanden aan boord van het nieuwe Chinese ruimtestation hebben gewoond. De voorbereidingen voor de lancering van de volgende bewoners zijn in volle gang. Maar 2021 wordt sowieso het jaar van de wat minder traditionele ruimtevluchten. Na de lanceringen van Branson en Bezos was er deze week de vlucht van Inspiration4. Vier ruimtetoersten die drie dagen rondjes rond de Aarde zouden draaien.

Dat en nog veel meer in het Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart van deze week.

Maar er komt nog meer van dat. Weldra is er Soyuz MS-19. Met één kosmonaut, een film director en een actrice. Soyuz MS-20 gaat dan weer met één kosmonaut en twee Japanse toeristen naar het ISS. En begin volgend jaar is er de lancering van Crew Dragon Axiom 1. Opnieuw een vlucht met drie toeristen (en één commerciële astronaut) naar het ISS.
