Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart – Week 2022/37–617

De meest recente lancering van een New Shepard liep fout af. Gelukkig was het deze keer een onbemande lancering. En – meteen een hele geruststelling voor toekomende toeristen – de capsule scheidde zich af van de raket en landde zonder problemen. Voor het SLS staat er op 21 september een “levens”belangrijke test op het programma. De test moet aantonen dat de lekproblemen met vloeibare waterstof achter de rug zijn. Dat en nog veel meer in het Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart van deze week.
