Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart – Week 2022/52–632

SpaceX en China lanceerden elk tweemaal de voorbije week. Zij zorgden ook elk voor meer dan 60 lanceringen. Wat er voor zorgde dat qua lanceringen 2022 een recordjaar werd. Dat en nog een beetje meer in het Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart van deze week.

En uiteraard, bij deze, ook de allerbeste wensen voor het nieuwe jaar. Dat 2023 een fijn (ruimtevaart)jaar mag worden.
