Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart – Week 2022/19–599

Het wordt langzaamaan spannend. Want vrijdag wordt – tenzij er nog iets zou gebeuren – Starliner voor de tweede keer gelanceerd. Opnieuw onbemand, omdat die eerste testvlucht eind 2019 niet echt positief was afgelopen. Als deze tweede vlucht een succes wordt, dan moet Boeing nog een bemande demonstratievlucht uitvoeren met zijn Starliner-capsule vooraleer NASA de vluchten naar het ISS kan verdelen over Boeing en SpaceX. Dat en nog veel meer in het Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart van deze week.
