Brazil to Rebuild Comandante Ferraz Base

In February 2012, the Brazilian Comandante Ferraz Base was 70% destroyed by a fire.  Next month as the Antarctic summer season begins they will set up some temporary installations for some research and support to take place.  Additionally, they will begin to work on taking apart the parts of the base affected by the fire.  They plan to begin rebuilding in November 2013.
