Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart – Week 2022/23–603

Dat het een spannende zomer gaat worden, dat is hier al wel eens verteld. Met de eerste lancering van SLS en een eerste orbitale lancering van Starship. Twee lanceringen om naar uit te kijken. Maar er is meer. Zo is er begin juli de eerste lancering van Vega C, de nieuwste versie van deze Europese kleine lanceerder. En Astra staat dit weekend voor de grote bevestiging. Dat en nog veel meer in het Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart van deze week.
