Mission Report: SXC takes Curacao by storm

Willemstad, Curacao, 12-31-2012

SXC Goes Brazil
Being one of the focus countries for future SXC astronauts, a SXC team visited Brazil from 20 – 25 November. Although this visit already was planned early in the SXC 2012 agenda, it fortunately happened to coincide with the visit of Crown Prince Willem Alexander of the Netherlands and his wife Princess Maxima as VIP’s in the larger scheme of a Netherlands Trade Mission to Brazil. SXC became a member of the Netherlands Delegation and participated in all the big and festive receptions for Brazilian counterparts of the Dutch companies involved in the presence of the Royals. The SXC team was fortunate to further explain its mission and offer a beautiful Lynx model to the Royal couple as the picture attests to.
SXC held it own reception for more than 100 hundred Brazilian guests and potential astronauts. This event proved a very animated affair with strong media attention resulting among others in a prominent two page article in the most important Sao Paulo newspaper. We are strengthened in our assumption of Brazil as a rewarding environment for its business. Many interesting leads have been noted including an invitation by the Brazilian State Secretary for Space to come and present SXC to him personally. SXC will closely monitor all these leads and provide the necessary follow up.
