Mars Express Arrives in Kazakhstan

The Mars Express orbiter and its companion Beagle II lander after much delay has arrived in the former Soviet republic of Kazakhstan, where it will be launched by the Russian space agency in June. The spacecraft were carried by two giant Antonov aircraft.

Although the European Space Agency's first solo mission to Mars has had some delays, it is now on track...and it looks as if it will be well worth the wait.
