Topics: mission status, Venus Express

Just a quick note because I didn't want to let the weekend go by without telling people that Venus Express' star trackers are back online; the spacecraft's blindness was, I'm very happy to report, only temporary. I got the word via Twitter and didn't find anything official on an ESA website, but here's a brief story(in Russian) from RIA Novosti, which says that ESA is now working on restoring the spacecraft to normal operations.
