The BepiColombo Mercury Magnetospheric Orbiter (MMO) Structural Model arrives at ESA's European Space Research and Technology Centre in Noordwijk, the Netherlands, on 7 November 2011. The spacecraft, in its transport container, has been moved into the Test Centre loading bay and the container tarpaulin cover has been removed. The container is now going to be cleaned before being moved into the ‘XMM’ cleanroom for opening.

The MMO is being developed and built by the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA).
