According to the newsticker under www.welt.de section "Wissenschaft" Venus Express successfully has entered an orbit around Venus.

If the probe is intact is going to be found out later since the probe has to turn itself before.

According to another entry of the newsticker under www.welt.de Venus Express is intact and in good health after Venus orbit insertion.

Another victory for R-7 and the Soviet model of spaceflight.
