Once in a lifetime chance for children to give a Galileo satellite their name Offentliggjort den: 07/04/2011
The European Commission is launching a drawing competition aimed at raising the interest of children for space. The child with the best drawing in each Member State will have his or her name given to a satellite of the Galileo programme. The first two satellites to be launched in September will bear the names of the winning children aged 9 - 11 from Belgium and Bulgaria where the competition opens on 10 April. The same competition will get under way in the other 25 Member States in September.
