Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart – Week 2022/11–591

De Maan is weer een stap dichter gekomen. NASA rolde afgelopen week het Space Launch System naar het lanceerplatform. Met een lancering in mei (?). Tegelijkertijd in Texas werden Booster 4 en Ship 20 op elkaar geplaatst. Ondertussen vlogen drie Russen naar het ISS waar ze welkom werden geheten door zowel de Russen als de Amerikanen. Ondanks al wat er in Oekraïne gebeurt, bleek 400 km hoger alles peis en vree. Maar het feit dat de gele pakjes met blauwe strepen uiteindelijk met alle aandacht gingen lopen, toont aan dat er ook daarboven misschien toch wat meer aan de hand is. Dat en nog veel meer in het Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart.

Over ruimtevaart, Rusland, Oekraïne en de rest van de wereld.
Verderop vind je in deze NUDR ook nog de deze week gelanceerde Soyuz MS-21, de volgende week terugkerende Soyuz MS-19, meer in het ISS hoofdstuk en er is ook nog ExoMars.
