A quick update from the Mars Express team here at ESOC: based on telemetry and information downloaded after the 9 January Phobos flyby, the spacecraft completed the flyby according to plan. Mars Express is healthy and the team are now waiting for science data to be downloaded over the next ten days.

The data will be passed to the various instrument teams for analysis, and, according the ESA's Mars Express Project Scientist Olivier Witasse, we expect to have the high-resolution images later in the week of 17 January. -- Daniel
