Due to improved weather conditions, the Galileo satellite launch from Europe’s spaceport in French Guiana is now scheduled to take place at 14:27 CEST (12:27 UTC) today 22 August 2014. You can watch the launch live!
The lift-off can be viewed via live streaming here.
The two satellites to be launched are the first of a new series and will bring us a step closer to the fully operational phase of the independent European satellite navigation programme. The satellites, called Doresa and Milena, were named by two schoolchildren who won an EU wide drawing competition.
