Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart – Week 2021/39–566

Blue Origin gaat in oktober een tweede reeks toeristen lanceren. Dat was het goede nieuws. Maar verder komt de firma van Bezos langs alle kanten onder vuur te liggen. Het lijkt er van kwaad naar erger te gaan. Voor Virgin Galactic was er dan weer goed nieuws. Ze mogen terug vliegen van de FAA maar die gaan nu een kijkje nemen bij Blue Origin. Dat en nog veel meer in het Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart van deze week.
