Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart – Week 2022/29–609

Deze ochtend werd Wentian gelanceerd, een nieuwe module voor het Chinese ruimtestation. Vanavond moet die module gekoppeld zijn. Wat het ISS betreft was er uiteraard de eerste ruimtewandeling van een Europese vrouwelijke astronaute. Samen met een Russische collega werd er gewerkt aan Nauka en de European Robot Arm, waarvan de toekomst onzeker blijft. Vertragingen zijn er voor de eerstvolgende Crew Dragon vlucht, alsook voor de bevoorradingscapsule Cygnus, zij het om totaal verschillende redenen. Er zijn wat problemen voor het Commercial Lunar Payload Services programma, alsook voor de Russische Luna-25. Met een uitgebreid overzicht van (inter)planetaire missies, uiteraard James Webb Space Telescope en diens eerste foto’s, Nancy Grace Roman Telescope én zowaar ook nog interessant nieuws uit het Belgische ruimtevaartwereldje. Dat en – ja inderdaad – nog veel meer in het Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart van deze week.
