The Express missions may not be media stars, but it's relieving to see these rugged probes keeping our eyes open on Venus and Mars when new launches are put in jeopardy by the caprices of economy. smile.gif

That is a little bit concerning, Mars Express, together with Cluster and INTEGRAL, is slated for termination at the end of December 2022. "However, [whatever this really means], ESA would like to engage in a creative process for these missions and develop innovative concepts that [...] would make it attractive for the SPC to re-evaluate their decision." What's funny is that the official announcement of the mission extensions fails to give a direct indication of such a severe decision.
