The European Space Agency’s Galileo satellites continue to upgrade Europe’s satellite navigation system. On Oct. 17 two satellites landed at the European spaceport site in French Guiana aboard a Boeing 747 cargo jet from Luxembourg Airport. The two will be launched together with two more Galileo satellites in late December. The Galileo constellation has been in operation since Dec. 15, 2016, and is now being gradually expanded.
