14 Galileo satellites now in orbit
from GPS World
The Galileo satellite navigation system that will help Europe find its way in the 21st century now has 14 satellites in orbit after this week's double launch. Galileos 13 and 14 lifted off together atop a Soyuz rocket from French Guiana. This seventh Galileo launch went by the book: the first three Soyuz stages placed the satellites safely into low orbit, after which their Fregat upper stage hauled them the rest of the way into their target medium-altitude orbit.
