Latest Atmospheric escape Stories
Space physicists from the University of Leicester are part of an international team that has identified the impact of the Sun on Mars' atmosphere.
Using two ESA spacecraft, planetary scientists are watching the atmospheres of Mars and Venus being stripped away into space. The new observations show that, despite the differences in size and distance from the Sun, Mars and Venus are surprisingly similar.
On April 20, 2006, after its first 9-day, elongated orbit around Venus, ESAâ€™s Venus Express started to get closer to the planet, until it reached its final 24-hour long orbit on May 7th.
