Europe resumes Galileo satnav deployment
Paris (AFP) March 28, 2015
Europe resumed deployment of its beleaguered Galileo satnav programme on Friday, launching a pair of satellites seven months after a rocket malfunction sent two multi-million euro orbiters awry. Galileo's seventh and eighth satellites blasted off from Europe's spaceport in Kourou, French Guiana, at 2146 GMT (6:46 pm local time), to join four orbiters already in the constellation. Taken aloft aboard a Russian Soyuz rocket, the same type that malfunctioned last August, the pair entered their inten ... read more
