Satellites and rocket readied for July 25 Galileo launch
from GPS World
Four more Galileo satellites will be launched on a customized Ariane 5 on July 25. The next Arianespace rocket to orbit Galileo satellites has begun taking shape at the spaceport in French Guiana, reported Arianespace. Build-up of the heavy-lift vehicle is now underway inside the spaceport's Launcher Integration Building. Following the established assembly flow, the rocket build-up began with this week's positioning of the launch vehicle's central core cryogenic stage over one of two mobile launch tables used for Ariane 5.
