Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart – Week 2022/12–592

Er gebeurt zoveel in de ruimtevaart tegenwoordig. En dat ondanks de oorlog in Oekraïne. Het gaat om de dagelijkse operationele ruimtevaart, het gaat om het verderzetten van het commerciële aspect, met het toerisme als ruimteuitschieter. Ondanks alles blijft het ISS in zijn geheel rond de aarde draaien, met een planning van terugkerende en nog te lanceren astronauten (en toeristen). Het Chinese ruimtestation maakt zich klaar voor een wisseling van bewoners. Het SLS maakt zich klaar voor een Wet Dress Rehearsal terwijl Starship een maand langer moet wachten op de FAA. En Dirk Frimout ging 30 jaar geleden als eerste Belg de ruimte in. Dat en nog veel meer in het Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart.

Bij de foto: Dirk Frimout vierde afgelopen week de 30ste verjaardag van zijn ruimtemissie met ruimteveer Atlantis. Hier poseert hij voor een opblaasbare versie van “zijn” ruimteveer op de Wetenschapsbattle in Gent. Foto: Koen Geukens/Volkssterrenwacht Urania.
