Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart – Week 2022/10–590

De oorlog in Oekraïne vertaalt zich in de ruimte momenteel in vraagtekens rond het ISS. En dat lijkt vooral te wijten aan Rogozin, het hoofd van Roscosmos. Al moet je ook hier opletten voor fake news. Noord-Korea en Iran lieten ondertussen ook van zich horen en in de VS vierde het National Reconnaissance Office zijn 60ste verjaardag. Kortom, ook in de ruimte is het militaire aspect nooit ver weg. Dat en nog veel meer in het Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart.

Bij de foto: Astronaut Mark Vande Hei is de afgelopen dagen één van dé gespreksonderwerpen geweest in de ruimtevaart. In principe komt hij samen met twee Russische kosmonauten op het einde van deze  maand terug naar huis. Maar Rusland zou gedreigd hebben Vande Hei in het ruimtestation achter te laten. Voorlopig lijkt dat gewoon “fake news” te zijn. Anderzijds dreigt Rusland al een tijdje om zijn deel van het ISS stil te leggen dan wel af te scheiden.
