A Soyuz launched out of Kourou, French Guiana, on Friday, carrying Galileo-FM3 and Galileo-FM4 to orbit. These two satellites will join with two other Galileo satellites that were launched in October of 2011 to perform extensive testing and prove that the "mini-constellation" can provide navigational services. The NORAD catalog (or SSC) numbers for Galileo-FM3 is 38857 and for Galileo-FM4 is 38858. Stay up-to-date with the latest launches by subscribing to AGI Launch Notifications.
