Report for Period 14 September to 20 September 2008Nominal Venus Express mission operations were conducted during the reporting period. The eclipse season started with the spacecraft passing daily through Venus's shadow from 19 September onward. During these brief daily eclipses the solar arrays are not illuminated by the Sun's light.

Report for Period 31 August to 6 September 2008Nominal operations were conducted during the reporting period. An orbit control manoeuvre (OCM) was successfully completed on 31 August (DoY 244). The manoeuvre constituted a phase correction, intended to keep the phasing of Venus Express in its orbit in sync with mission operations from ground. The...

Report for Period 30 August to 5 September 2008The reporting period was characterised by the final navigation of Rosetta towards asteroid Steins, culminating in the successful flyby on the evening of 5 September 2008 at 18:38 UTC (the exact time of closest approach to be confirmed after detailed analysis of telemetry data). The navigation was...

Report for Period 24 August to 30 August 2008Nominal operations were conducted during the reporting period. The atmospheric drag experiment measurement passes associated with the pericentre altitude lowering campaign have now concluded.
Published: 2 September 2008
Report for Period 16 August to 29 August 2008Operations during the two weeks covered in this report focused on the refinement of the orbit determination process in the frame of the asteroid fly-by operations. Rosetta is now permanently pointing to asteroid Steins with occasional re-pointings required for instruments calibrations in preparation...
