Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart – Week 2022/25–605

Met een min of meer geslaagde Wet Dress Rehearsal lijkt de eerste lancering van SLS/Orion nu wel echt dichterbij te komen. Eind augustus dus. Maar het Artemis-programma kent – tenzij er nog iets tussenkomt – op maandag 27 juni al een start met de lancering van de bescheiden CAPSTONE. Bescheiden qua grootte maar niet onbelangrijk. CAPSTONE moet immers aantonen dat de NRHO – dat is de baan rond de Maan van de toekomstige Lunar Gateway – een haalbare baan is.

Op het (inter)planetaire front was er minder goed nieuws voor Psyche, met uitstel van de lancering tot wellicht 2023. Goed nieuws voor ESA want BepiColombo deed een geslaagde tweede passage van Mercurius.

O ja, kijk ook op het einde van deze NUDR. Met nieuws over Starlink en andere satellietconstellaties, over ruimtevaart en de oorlog in Oekraïne, over satelliettechnologie, on-orbit service, ruimteafval en – om af te ronden – kakkerlakken.

Dat en nog veel meer in het Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart van deze week.

Bij de foto: CAPSTONE, de eerste sonde ooit die in een Near Rectilinear Halo Orbit rond de Maan gaat draaien, wordt volgende week gelanceerd met een Electron-raket van RocketLab.
