Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart – Week 2022/16–596

Hoe toptechnologisch ruimtevaart ook moge zijn, het weer speelt soms een storend element. Zoals deze week. De weersomstandigheden zorgen ervoor dat de “toeristen” van Axiom 1 wat langer in het ruimtestation mogen blijven. Het zorgt er ook voor dat de bemanning van Crew 4 wat langer op hun lancering moeten wachten. Een mooi excuus om de ruimtevaartexpo in Antwerpen te bezoeken. Dat en nog veel meer in het Nieuws Uit de Ruimtevaart van deze week.
