Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart – Week 2021/38–565

Terwijl er in de Verenigde Staten gepraat wordt over de toekomst van het ISS en over de toekomst na het ISS, gaan de Chinezen onverdroten verder met hun ruimtestation in opbouw. Afgelopen week werd een nieuw bevoorradingsschip gelanceerd dat korte tijd later koppelde met het ruimtestation. Weldra volgt een nieuwe Shenzhou met een nieuwe bemanning. Dat en nog veel meer in het Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart van deze week.
