Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart – Week 2022/47–627

Deze aflevering is voor een groot gedeelte gewijd aan de nieuwe lichting Europese astronauten enerzijds en de plannen van ESA voor de nabije toekomst anderzijds. En dat er een derde Belgische astronaut gekozen is, is natuurlijk mooi meegenomen. En uiteraard wordt de rest van ruimtevaartnieuws overheerst door de eerste Artemis-vlucht. Dat en nog veel meer in het Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart van deze week.
