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 2022/33–613

Het lijkt een beetje op Kerstmis 2021. Toen werd JWST gelanceerd. Een lancering waar heel lang naar werd uitgekeken en waarvan sommigen dachten dat het nooit zou gaan gebeuren. Nu, met Artemis 1, de eerste lancering van SLS, is er hetzelfde gevoel. Met een lanceerdatum die steeds maar vooruit werd geschoven. Met allerlei hindernissen die overwonnen moesten worden. Maar kijk, 29 augustus is geen Kerstmis, maar laat ons hopen dat we evenzeer een geslaagde lancering van het SLS gaan zien, een geslaagde start voor de eerste vlucht in het nieuwe Maanprogramma van NASA. 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.
