A small hop for a starship...
In this episode of our biweekly summer series we discuss space news from the past two weeks. Most important and spectacular was of course the first hop by SpaceX's Starship Hopper, yes, the one that is supposed to sooner or later hop its way to Mars.
But stay tuned for other important updates, such as a satellite that prints itself in space, a mysterious ooutage of the European Galileo satnav system and an equally mysterious Chinese space station that burnt up in the atmosphere.
Meanwhile Thys travels in Asia, using information on deforestation from Satelligence, a Dutch company that we will devote our next episode to.
