    Comments: The GIOVE B satellite launched Saturday will pave the way for the 2010 launch of the first four members of Galileo's operational fleet. Subsequent launches through the end of 2013 will fill out the final constellation, which will consist of 27 active satellites and three spacecraft in reserve. The satellites will be spread among three orbital planes inclined 56 degrees to the equator. The design will ensure full coverage of Europe and nearly all of the world's population. The system will provide a free service open to all users, plus additional encrypted channels for commercial and government customers.
