Report for Period 14 December to 20 December 2008The Venus Express spacecraft entered nominally in the quadrature phase - the period during which the Sun-Spacecraft-Earth angle is between 75° and 95°. During the quadrature phase revised operating constraints on the VMC lead to the necessity for changing the spacecraft attitude to prevent...

Report for Period 7 December to 13 December 2008Nominal operations were conducted during the reporting period. VIRTIS continues to be operated in the visual channels only. Time correlation was performed on DOY 344. Radio Science Investigation (RSI) occultation measurements were taken during five ground station passes in the reporting period.

Report for Period 30 November to 6 December 2008Nominal operations were conducted during the reporting period. The first day of the reporting period was the last day of the extended maintenance downtime for the Cebreros ground station. On this last day (DOY 335) the New Norcia ground station performed the communication pass. The Cebreros ground...

Report for Period 23 November to 29 November 2008Nominal operations were conducted during the reporting period. Because of on-going maintenance activities at Cebreros, the New Norcia (NNO) ground station was used for communication with the spacecraft. Some of these communication passes were combined with radio science occultation experiments. On...
