De Werkgroep Ruimtevaart groepeert VVS-leden die zich interesseren in de ruimtevaart. Anderzijds proberen we op allerlei manieren over ruimtevaart te vertellen en te schrijven.

Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart – Week 2022/31–611

Zeven lanceringen waarvan zes zowat op één dag tijd. Of het een record is weet ik niet. Het zijn ook zowat allemaal totaal verschillende satellieten. Militaire satellieten, geheime ruimtetuigen, een groepje toeristen, een maansonde. Ondertussen blijft Rusland dan toch (wellicht) wat langer in het ISS. En Artemis blijft voorzien voor 29 augustus. Dat en nog veel, veel meer in het Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart van deze week.

Nog dit: Op de zondagen in augustus is het “Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart” ook present op de “XPO Space – The Human Quest”. Tijdens een “ruimtevaartbabbel” van ongeveer een uur maken we een keuze uit de hoogtepunten van de voorbije week. De sessie heeft plaats om 14 uur. Om 16 uur wordt die sessie nog eens herhaald. De “ruimtevaartbabbel” is gratis, maar je moet uiteraard wel een ticket hebben tot de XPO.
