Venus Express

After all the success of the Mars Express spacecraft, ESA's Venus Express - created from the 'spare parts' for Mars Express - has entered orbit around the planet Venus. It has already taken some images in UV and infra-red light which look quite interesting. Emily Lakdawalla over at the Planetary Society has been following the events at ESA's European Space Operations Centre in Darmstadt. Her blog makes great reading so scoot over there and have a look.
