Europe's Venus Express to arrive at its enigmatic destination
For 153 days, Europe's Venus Express has been racing to our nearest planetary neighbour, the hothouse planet Venus. The mission, which started on 9 November 2005 at 04:33 CET on a Soyuz rocket launched from the Russian facility in Baikonur, Kazakhstan, will reach its target on 11 April at 9:19 CEST after a journey of some 400 million kilometres. The German Aerospace Center (DLR) is playing a key role in the mission's science instrument package as well as the spacecraft hardware.
