The following four Galileo navigation satellites were placed on the Ariane-5 rocket to launch them on Tuesday. Start will spend from the spaceport in Kourou (French Guiana).
The satellites arrived already attached to the dispenser, which will hold them during the launch, and then drop at an altitude of 22,922 km. A special 14-meter fairing will protect them from atmospheric influence.
Four Galileo satellites are about to launch into space on December 12, 2017. This launch will increase the number of Galileo satellites to 22. The mission began on December 15, 2016. Next year they plan to launch two more satellites and two orbital spare parts.
Galileo is a global European satellite navigation system. It will allow users from all over the world to know their location in time and space.
Four Galileo satellites are protected by an Aryan-5 rocket payload fairing, which is scheduled to start on December 12, 2017.
