Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart – Week 2022/42–622

Dat er vijf lanceringen waren deze week is niet echt een uitschieter. Maar dat daarvan 3 lanceringen vanop Russische bodem vertrokken is wel opvallend. Voor Ariane VI kwam er alweer uitstel, deze keer tot eind 2023. Ondertussen blijft JWST ons verrassen met nieuwe schitterende opnames. Dat en nog veel meer in het Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart van deze week.
