Report for Period 31 May to 6 June 2009The Venus Express spacecraft and instruments performed nominally during this week of quadrature operations. The spacecraft entered the current quadrature phase on 29 May. These phases occur regularly and are defined by the periods in the orbit of the planet Venus during which the Sun-spacecraft-Earth angle...

Report for Period 24 May to 30 May 2009The Venus Express spacecraft and instruments performed nominally during this week. On 29 May the spacecraft entered a new quadrature phase. These phases occur in pairs (inbound and outbound) and are defined by the periods in the orbit of the planet Venus during which the Sun-spacecraft-Earth angle is...

Report for Period 17 May to 23 May 2009The Venus Express spacecraft and instruments performed nominally during this week. Use of the Cebreros ground station was required during the launch and early orbit phase (LEOP) of the Herschel and Planck missions, which were launched on 14 May. This has had an impact on a few communication passes for Venus...

Report for Period 10 May to 16 May 2009The Venus Express spacecraft and instruments performed nominally during this week. The dual launch of Herschel and Planck on 14 May required the use of the Cebreros ground station for spacecraft communications during the missions' launch and early orbit phase. This has had an impact on a few communication...

Report for Period 19 April to 25 April 2009The Venus Express spacecraft and payload performed nominally during the reporting period. The mission's sixth gravity observation campaign has been performed on 20 April. A battery deep discharge test has been performed on 22 April to obtain measurements for updating/improvement of the battery models.
