X as a multiplier… Something that happened 12 times?
"Base" could be a military base where (something related to the clue) happened

Member "12"? Well, no member with the name of 12 comes up on a search.
...Base? No thoughts yet... maybe means begining?
...Period? No thoughts yet... maybe pointing us to a time period or refferring to a "."

Hope that helps.
One of the first things NASA did when the Apollo 11 astronauts reached the Moon was to set up a laser reflector that would allow scientists on Earth to measure the distance from the Earth to the Moon. Over the 12-year period from 1969 to 1981, scientists kept track of the distance to the Moon and found it to be increasing approximately 4 cm per year.1 This allows us to build a computer model that calculates how close the Moon would have been to the Earth in the past. The output from that model is shown in the graph.
