Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart – Week 2023/01–634

Het nieuwe jaar is nog maar pas begonnen en het is wel duidelijk dat 2023 het jaar van de Maan gaat worden. De eerste Artemis-vlucht is pas afgelopen. Capstone, Danuri zijn al aangekomen, En Hakuto-R is onderweg. Ondertussen ligt de eerste lancering van 2023 ook al achter ons. Met – oh verrassing – een Falcon 9. En liefst 114 satellietjes die nu rond de Aarde draaien. Dat en nog veel meer ook dit jaar in het Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart.

Vergeet ook niet het “Jaaroverzicht der Jaaroverzichten 2022”.

En uiteraard, de beste wensen voor het nieuwe jaar.
