Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart – Week 2023/02–635

Zeven lancering afgelopen week, maar twee liepen minder goed af. De mislukte lancering vanuit de UK, de eerste vanop Westeuropese “bodem”, kreeg veruit de meeste aandacht. Ondertussen begint de lanceerkoorts meer en meer te stijgen, wegens de op komst zijnde orbitale lancering van een Starship. En de Russen hebben een oplossing voor het probleem met Soyuz MS-22. Dat en nog veel meer in het Nieuws Uit De Ruimtevaart van deze week.

Lange Mars 7A lanceert drie testsatelliet Shijan 23. Eerste Chinese lancering van 2023.
Oorspronkelijk werd vermeld dat er drie satellieten in een baan om de Aarde zouden gebracht zijn. Naast Shijan 23 ook  Shiiyan 22A en B.
Maar blijkbaar zaten die twee op een lancering later deze week.
