Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart – Week 2022/13–593

Met een Wet Dress Rehearsal die momenteel voor het SLS nog lopende is, met een Starship dat wacht op de FAA en de nieuwe versie van de Raptor-motoren is het wachten op de eerste lanceringen van deze twee giganten. Ondertussen is er heel wat activiteit in en rond het ISS met vertrekkende bemanningen en met een op stapel staande toeristische vlucht. Maar wat dat Ijnternational Space Station betreft, is het toch uitkijken naar Rusland. Gaan ze nu effectief stoppen met hun deelname aan het ruimtestation of zal het uiteindelijk zo’n vaart niet lopen? Dat en nog heel veel meer in het Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart van deze week.

Bij de foto: Eind goed al goed voor de bemanning van Soyuz MS-19. Neen, de twee Russen, Shkaplerov en Dubrov, kwamen niet alleen terug. Neen, ze lieten de Amerikaan Vande Hei niet achter in het ISS. Alle drie arriveerden in Kazakstan zonder problemen met hun capsule. Maar hoe het verder moet met het ISS, blijft dankzij Rogozin (het hoofd van Roscosmos) nog een groot vraagteken.
