Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart – Week 2022/24–604

Of het ooit eerder gebeurd is? Ik weet het niet. Hoe dan ook, drie lanceringen op rij van een zelfde type raket – in dit geval de Falcon 9 – is hoe dan ook een memorable prestatie. De recentste lancering van Astra was daarentegen er eentje om te vergeten. De nuttige lading ging verloren toen de tweede trap problemen vertoonde. Ondertussen is NASA opnieuw gestart met de Wet Dress Rehearsal van het Space Launch System. En heeft SpaceX zijn milieuvergunning gekregen (onder voorwaarden). Of dit leidt tot een memorabele zomer met twee spectaculaire lanceringen, dat moeten we afwachten. Dat en nog veel meer in het Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart.
