Is a rocketeer able to re-close a hatch opened that turn.

Nope. If it's opened for you, it's opened for them.

Not even the Professor can close a hatch with his Override.

Wait, the Professor can lock hatches though.

Are we saying that the Professor can only lock closed hatches? It's been a while since I played (sadly) but I think I overlooked that!

Similarly, are we saying the heat ray can only seal a closed hatch, not an open one? wow

There is no "close hatch" action.

I don't think it is possible to open, lock, seal, or destroy a hatch that is already open. So the Heat Ray and the Professor both can act only on a hatch that is currently closed.

There's no restriction on locking hatches. I would allow the Prof to lock an open hatch.

Out of curiosity, are you asking hypothetically, or did you encounter a situation where you thought it best to close an open hatch? Got a Sentinel close to a badly injured rocketeer?

This all true. However,

...this part is not true. The Prof can override open hatches and lock them, and the Ray Gun can seal or destroy them. (Apologies to Chuft for answering hastily in private.)
