Yep, that's pretty much what happened:
It went sailing off into deep space for 5 years and all it took was 20 minutes of control thruster to bring it back into Venus' orbit?
Is this like when Darth Vader's Tie fighter spun out of control, sailing off into deep space but he managed to regain control of it, using the Force?
Comparing the position of Venus' topography with the position of the arcuate structure, the Aphrodite continent, which reaches an altitude of approximately 5 km, was located just under the center of the arcuate pattern (Figure 2). In order to investigate the cause of arcuate structure obtained by observation, we performed numerical simulation of simple Venusian atmosphere and investigated under what condition arcuate structure occurs. In the simulation, when simulating the influence of this terrain and giving a local barometric change to the lower atmosphere with an altitude of 10 km, it propagates to the sky as a wave called a "gravity wave", and when reaching an altitude of 65 km, a bow It was shown to spread to shape (Figure 3). In other words, it has been shown that atmospheric pressure changes in a limited area of the lower atmosphere propagate through the atmosphere, eventually creating a huge arcuate structure.
