All 35 members of the industrial team from Belgium, Germany, The Netherlands, Sweden and Italy has arrived to Esrange Space Center, and so has also ESA’s technical and science project co-oordinators.

Comentário: Pois é leitor a “Operação MASER 12” é a primeira missão de duas já definidas de um foguete brasileiro além mar no ano de 2012. Trata-se do lançamento do décimo terceiro “VSB-30”, o mais exitoso foguete brasileiro em terras estrangeiras. A outra missão de 2012 é a do “VS-40” que deverá ser lançado da Noruega em abril desse ano com o experimento alemão SHEFEX II abordo. Existe também a possibilidade do lançamento de um “VS-30/Orion” da Base de Woomera no Sul da Austrália com o experimento supersônico americano/australiano HIFIRE-5. Na realidade essa missão do HIFIRE-5 deveria ter ocorrido desde outubro do ano passado e a qualquer momento deverá ser realizada.
