Description

The ‘eyes’ of Venus Express are extremely sensitive to a wide range of electromagnetic wavelengths, from ultraviolet to infrared. They will be able to dig down through the atmosphere by exploiting for the first time the so-called ‘spectroscopic windows’, discovered in the late 1980s thanks to ground observations.
