Since April 2006, the European Venus Express mission has been orbiting planet Venus, taking a wealth of data. In the mean time, observations from Earth based observatories complement the Venus Express data. The analysis of both these data give scientists a better insight into how Venus works. This film records an observing session at the Observatoire de Haute Provence in the south of France. Prof. Jean Loup Bertaux is measuring the winds on Venus and explains the what and why of his observations. As an extra he demonstrates the importance of coffee for astronomers.
