A first glimpse came in 1997 when Japan's Institute of Space and Astronautical Science launched the HALCA (High Altitude Laboratory for Communications and Astronomy) satellite (S&T: September 1997, page 16).
A successor to HALCA, the Advanced Radio Interferometry between Space and Earth (ARISE) mission, is currently on NASA's long-term road map.
