Reuters continued coverage of Friday’s Soyuz rocket launch, which placed two Galileo navigational satellites into the wrong orbit. The European Commission said yesterday that “it still has confidence in its plans to build a rival to the U.S. satellite navigation system,” but wants Arianespace and the ESA to outline how they plan to correct the situation. According to the article, initial information places the blame on the rocket’s upper stage. However, the preliminary report from the launch investigation is expected next month.
