Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart – Week 2022/01–581

Het jaar 2022 wordt een belangrijk jaar voor de ruimtevaart. Met de eerste orbitale lancering van een Starship, het debuut van het Space Launch System en laat ons hopen nog enkele andere nieuwe raketten. Maar 2022 is vooral het jaar van de James Webb Space Telescope. Na een geslaagde lancering op Kerstdag vorig jaar begon men de omgekeerde origami, het weer open plooien van de telescoop. En wat misschien niemand voor mogelijk had gehouden, het hele proces verliep zonder problemen. Maar we zijn er nog niet. De telescoop moet nog afgesteld worden, JWST is nog niet op zijn bestemming en de wetenschappers hebben nog heel wat tijd nodig om de instrumenten te kalibreren. Dat en nog veel meer in het Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart van deze week.

Zoals elk jaar is er ook het jaaroverzicht der jaaroverzichten. Het overzicht van 2021 vind je hier.

Wie graag een PDF wil met alle NUDR’s van 2021, stuur een mailtje naar  nieuwsuitderuimtevaart @ gmail.com (maar dan zonder de tussenliggende blanco’s). Vermeld wel of je de PDF wil van 2020 en/of 2021. Ten laatste eind januari krijg je het bestand dan doorgemaild.
