Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart – Week 2022/45–625

Afgelopen week was een weekje met een Chinees tintje. Met naast twee “gewone” lanceringen ook het Chinese ruimtestation in een hoofdrol, met het vertrek van een bevoorradingsschip en de lancering en aankomst van een nieuwe Tianzhou. Trouwens, ook mooie beelden van dat Chinese ruimtestation. Maar het was ook een week met het zonnepaneel in de (iets minder positive) hoofdrol. Eén van de zonnepanelen van de Cygnus weigerde te openen. En ook de pas gelanceerde JPSS zat even te worstelen met één van zijn energieleveranciers. Dat en nog veel meer in het Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart van deze week.
