Report for Period 5 April to 11 April 2009The Venus Express spacecraft and payload performed nominally during the reporting period.
Published: 15 April 2009
Report for Period 29 March to 4 April 2009The Venus Express spacecraft and payload performed nominally during the reporting period. Taking advantage of the high telemetry bit rates (228 and 182 kbps), this week had a high level of science data production.

Report for Period 21 March to 3 April 2009The reporting period covers the last two weeks of active cruise phase before the start of passive cruise phase 6 on 2 April 2009. The spacecraft is now in Near Sun Hibernation Mode (NSHM) and will remain in this passive cruise configuration until beginning of September. Spacecraft and ground segment...

Report for Period 17 January to 13 February 2009The reporting period covers four weeks of active cruise phase characterised by platform and payload check-out activities. Spacecraft and ground segment performance during the reporting period have been nominal.

Report for Period 1 February to 7 February 2009The Venus Express spacecraft and payload performed nominally during this week, with VIRTIS continued being operated in visual channels only.
Published: 12 February 2009
Report for Period 25 January to 31 January 2009Nominal operations were conducted during the reporting period. Sunday, 25 January, was the last day of this inbound quadrature phase. Having been in a tilted configuration since 19 December 2008, the spacecraft started performing communication passes in a non-tilted configuration again on 26 January.

Mission StatusMuch effort was needed in preparation for the 2008 eclipse season which, once again, was almost coincident with Mars being furthest from the Sun; making it an operationally very challenging period for the Mars Express mission.

Mission OperationsThe tilt of Cluster 3 (45° with respect to Cluster 4) has been successfully performed in May 2008. This allowed the 3D electric field to be measured for the first time by combining both spacecraft measurements. Preliminary results show the successful measurement of parallel electric fields in the auroral zone. The tilt also...

Mission StatusThe spacecraft status is nominal, with the High Gain Antenna (HGA) Z-axis in a fixed position. All SOHO instruments are nominal and science operations are progressing smoothly.

Mission StatusFollowing a full recovery from its 6th Emergency Sun Acquisition Mode on 6-7 October 2008, XMM-Newton operations continue smoothly with the spacecraft, instruments and ground segment all performing nominally.
Published: 2 February 2009
Mission Status On 14 January 2008, during the mission's third north polar pass, the spacecraft reached maximum northern latitude on its third solar orbit. Around the same time the X-band transmitter onboard the spacecraft failed after its power supply could not be switched on again following what was planned to be a temporary switch off. This...
