+ - Galileo To Be Europe's Answer To US GPS ->

Submitted by

judgecorp writes "Two Galileo satellites that will signify the start of the European Union’s answer to the American Global Positioning System (GPS) will be launched into orbit on Thursday aboard a Russian Soyuz rocket. It's using Soyuz as it is cheaper than the French Ariane — and the satellite system is supposed to free Europe from dependence on a US-controlled positioning system."
