The US keeps shooting down the satellites with so called "friendly fire"?

Re: Galileo: What's the hold up?

Is the system being held up by a lack of money, technology, determination or a combination...


Btw, APTZ....Why are your posts always blank?

I believe the US system now has 100% coverage so the motivation is a bit lower now. Also unless you plan military uses there is no downside to jacking into the US system.

Personally I would see more advantage to adding WAAS stations

Except it's a stated goal of the EU to develop their own independent system. It's a part of their 2010 economic superiority plan....

Re: Galileo: What's the hold up?

I read an unquoted blurb today that stated the first Galileo GNSS satellite was to go up in November 2005, but can't seem to confirm it....

Anyone....?


LMAO at CBRVFR's "Tele" comment....

For some reason, I am extremely interested in following the milestone events that will eventually supplant the US as the world's major superpower...

Sure they have. We trained them in ballistic missiles so they could shoot our stuff to space cheaper for us...and make sure if they shot at the White House the missile would actually work.

The EU is an attempt at leveraging all of Europe's might against massive trading partners like the US, but these are still distinct nations with their own agendas and biases going back a thousand years. I finally finished Churchill's History of the English Speaking People's and couldn't help but draw some parallels to the development of the EU and the affirmation of a US united under a central government in the Civil War.
