Caption: Galileo navigation satellite. Artwork of a navigation satellite for the European Galileo satellite navigation network in orbit about the Earth, transmitting data for position (latitude and longitude) and elevation (height above sea level). Galileo will consist of 30 satellites orbiting over 23,000 kilometres above the Earth. It will be used for car, train and aircraft guidance, rescue services, and road use taxation. Solar panels (blue) provide power for each satellite. The full Galileo network, surrounding the Earth at right, is scheduled to begin operating by 2014.
