The Imager for Low Energetic Neutral Atoms experiment (ILENA) at the Physikalisches Institut of the University of Bern is used to evaluate charge state conversion surfaces for low energy neutral particle instruments.
- Venus Express
Venus Express will be ESA’s first mission to Earth’s nearest planetary neighbour, Venus. The mission was born after ESA asked for proposals, in March 2001, suggesting how to reuse the design of the Mars Express spacecraft.
