Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart – Week 2022/51–631

Het jaar 2022 lijkt voor de ruimtevaart een beetje in mineur te eindigen. Vooral voor de Europese ruimtevaart werd het geen aangenaam jaar, nu met een mislukte lancering van een Vega C die samen met de tot eind 2023 uitgestelde Ariane VI in de toekomst voor het mooie weer moet gaan zorgen. Ondertussen moet Rusland nog officieel beslissen of er een onbemande Soyuz gaat gelanceerd worden (of niet). Die moet 3 gestrande ruimtevaarders in het ISS gaan ophalen. En voor de Marssonde InSight kwam het al lang aangekondigde einde dan toch. Dat en nog veel meer in het Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart van deze week.
