Report for Period 18 July to 14 August 2010 (week 29 - week 32)
The reporting period, covering four weeks of Venus Express mission operations, was devoted to routine science activities. On 21 July the spacecraft entered a new quadrature phase that will last until 26 August. On 28 July a few anomalies were observed relating to the solid state mass memory (SSMM), which were solved by a warm restart of the SSMM. As part of the SSMM anomaly recovery a spacecraft safe mode was commanded on 30 July. After exit from the safe mode nominal operations were resumed. On 30 July another eclipse season started.
