The mission was born after ESA asked for proposals, in March 2001, suggesting how to reuse the design of the Mars Express spacecraft. View. VEX will also study the interactions between the atmosphere and the inter-planetary environment (solar wind) to better understand the evolution of the planet.

Venus Express is ESA's first mission to Earth's nearest planetary neighbour, Venus. Description: Large map of Venus's night side, as observed at 1.7 µm on 12 April 2006, during Venus Express's first orbit around the planet - capture orbit. ESA's Venus Express has returned the first-ever images of the Venusian south pole, from a distance of 206 452 kilometres, showing surprisingly clear structures and unexpected detail. The guidelines were extremely strict. Venus Express (VEX) is investigating the complex dynamics and chemistry of the Venusian atmosphere, and the interactions between the atmosphere and the surface, which will give clues about the characteristics of the surface. The images were taken 12 April during the spacecraft's initial capture orbit after successful arrival on 11 April 2006.
