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 2022/32–612

Zes lanceringen waarvan één mislukte. Bij het Indische Small Satellite Launch Vehicle liep het fout helemaal op het einde. En in Texas op Starbase worden weer motoren ontstoken. Zowel voor Booster 7 als Ship 24 waren er geslaagde statische testen. Maar de eerste orbitale lancering zal nog wel even op zich laten wachten. Voor het Space Launch System nadert D-Day met rasse schreden. Op 29 augustus is het (wellicht) zover. Dat en nog 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.

En op vrijdag 12 augustus ben ik op het Youtube-kanaal van volkssterrenwacht Urania  een wekelijks weerkerende update gestart, met het oog op Artemis 1, de eerste lancering van het Space Launch System. De eerste update vind je hier.
