Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart – Week 2022/17–597

De verlengde “vakantie” aan boord van het ruimtestation kwam dan toch aan een einde voor de Axiom 1 bemanning. Crew 4 arriveerde dan weer om te komen werken. Russische kosmonauten deden een ruimtewandeling en een Arabische astronaut gaat een half jaar naar het ruimtestation. Rusland blijft tegenstrijdige signalen uitzenden rond de toekomst van het ISS. De ene keer gaan ze blijven, de andere keer willen ze nog een tijdje blijven. Voor SpaceX blijft het ondertussen nagelbijtend wachten op de FAA die haar eindrapport alweer een maand heeft uitgesteld. Dat en nog veel meer in het Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart van deze week.

Bij de foto: De 18 segmenten van JWST’s hoofdspiegel staan perfect gealigneerd. En dat voor al de vier instrumenten. Nu krijgen de wetenschappers twee maanden de tijd om hun instrumenten te kalibreren. De foto toont verspreid over het volledige Field of View de stukjes die elk instrument te zien krijgt.
