Higher education still mainly online

While secondary school students are already being taught in class again, students are still mainly sitting at home. Because of the 1.5 metre distance that has to be kept, few students are able to attend lectures at universities or colleges of higher education. As a result, education is still mainly provided online. And that leads to motivation and mental problems among students. Rector(s) are worried about dropping out of studies and are arguing for a relaxation of the rules.

A day out to space?

Wubbo Ockels and Andrรฉ Kuipers already had the opportunity, but if its up to Elon Musk, Richard Branson and Jeff Bezos, a trip to the space will soon be something for you too. The billionaires are doing everything they can to get tourists into space by rocket or aeroplane in the near future. But: will it ever be something for the general public to discover the universe?

Reporter Mathijs Bouman finds out what you have to pay for it and therefore takes a seat in a simulator to see what such a trip outside the atmosphere does to his body.
