Probes of the Planets
During the course of its mission, Venus Express communicates with Earth by means of its two high gain antennas, located on two different sides of the spacecraft. Routinely, Venus Express will downlink scientific data for about eight hours once a day, when the spacecraft is around its furthest point from the planet (apocentre) along its 24-hour orbit.
