Europe’s global satellite navigation system, Galileo, moves a step closer on Wednesday with the launch of its first demonstrator spacecraft. Giove will be blasted into orbit by a Soyuz rocket from the European Space Agency’s base at Baikonur in Kazakhstan. Costing nearly 4 billion euros in public and private finance, Galileo is the biggest space project ever undertaken in Europe.
