The container for the space mission is en route to Kiruna in the north of Sweden. The logistics provider has, together with the research partner Fortis, given the container a look befitting of the mission. Here the container leaving Berlin.
Preparations are well underway for the Swedish Space Corporation’s 15th space mission. Gebrüder Weiss container left Berlin for Sweden. During a short stopover in Stockholm, research equipment was loaded that will now be transported to Kiruna in northern Sweden, some 2,000 kilometers away. The base of the Swedish Space Corporation is located there. Gebrüder Weiss is supporting the ‘SubOrbital Express’ mission with its logistical expertise, having already demonstrated last year its transport capabilities in Israel during the simulation of a mission by astronauts to Mars.
The SubOrbital Express mission involves sending twelve scientific experiments with a rocket into space to study their behaviour in a weightless environment. The tests on board have been provided by international research teams covering the fields of biomedicine, physics, astronomy and biology. The purpose of this mission is to gain insights relevant for research work and the work of astronauts in space.
