Summary:Model and orbital data for ESA's Venus Express spacecraft
Description:In March, 2001 the ESA (European Space Agency) asked for proposals in order to re-use the Mars Express design. The Venus Express proposal was the result. This add-on includes a model of the Venus Express spacecraft, along with textures, an XYZ orbit from the Earth to Venus and the orbital data needed to place the spacecraft around Venus. Please note that you only need to download ONE of the files described below. One is setup for DDS textures, and the other is for JPG textures. Nvidia users may prefer the DDS version.

Another great add-on. This makes for a great visualization tool for what has become an under-reported mission. home page
