SpaceX to launch European satellites

October 24, 2023  - By

Photo:SpaceX has signed a deal to launch four of Europe’s flagship navigation and secure communications satellites into orbit, reported The Wall Street Journal. The European Commission and the European Union (EU) member states have yet to give a final approval for the deal, the report added.

SpaceX and the European Space Agency recently signed an agreement for two launches next year, each carrying two Galileo satellites.

The deal states the satellites will be launched from the U.S. on SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket.

European space officials said last month they face crucial timing decisions in the coming weeks on the return to flight of Europe’s flagship space launchers following a series of delays.
