He asserts that by aligning Brazil with countries like China, Russia and India, Japan And the United States, SelenITA, is a steady step towards intergalactic exploration.

Moreover, he emphasizes the acumen of the initiative, which promises to benefit not only lunar research, but also to fertilize the soil for technological innovation in unexplored regions.
