GALILEO 16, GALILEO 15, GALILEO 17, and GALILEO 18 joined Europe's Galileo navigation fleet in orbit together, launched by a Ariane 5 rocket. The four satellites, built in Germany with navigation payloads from Britain, arrived in an orbit about 14,200 miles (22,900 kilometers) above Earth around three-and-a-half hours after blastoff from French Guiana. The Galileo network will have 18 satellites once the new additions enter service next year after several months of tests and verifications, but the 14 craft already in space should be enough for the European Commission to offer initial navigation services by the end of the year.
