Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart – Week 2021/47–574

Het einde van het jaar nadert en het lanceerritme stijgt. Deze week liefst 6 lanceringen Met de lanceringen van DART en Prichal als uitschieters. De ene gaat in de weg liggen van een planetoïde, de andere gaat het ISS uitbreiden. En ja, het was even schrikken maar met enige dagen vertraging gaat het nog altijd door: de lancering van de James Webb Space Telescope. Dat en (inderdaad) nog veel meer in het Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart.
