Through the Venus Radio Science Experiment on board Venus Express - using the powerful radio link bewteen the spacecraft and Earth - scientists will investigate the conditions of the ionosphere of the planet (upper atmospheric layer), and study the local conditions of the solar wind. The experiment will also allow the study of the physical properties of mid atmospheric layers and the roughness and electrical properties of the surface.
