That's one small step for Israel, and one giant leap for mankind (environmentally speaking, that is). Venus, an environmental satellite built by Israel Aerospace Industries, was launched yesterday from the Guiana Space Center in France.

The launch is a pretty big deal for Israel, and will be able to measure remarkable environmental data from around the world.
