The latest pair of Galileo satellites have arrived at Europe’s Spaceport in French Guiana ahead of their planned December 12th launch.

Satellite numbers 19 & 20, safely cocooned within protective air-conditioned containers, made the journey from Luxembourg aboard a 747 Cargo aircraft. On their arrival in French Guiana they were moved to the preparation building within the space centre where they will await the arrival of satellite numbers 21 & 22.

Once all four are on-site they will be loaded onto the Ariane 5 and the payload fairing attached in readiness for launch.
