I see Europe has launched it's own version of the GPS system so we won't be reliant on the Yank system which is a good thing but; it was launched from a Soviet rocket!what has happened to the French led European rocket system based in S.America? I seem to remember it had a few problems but I've never heard of it for a while. It was the French baby but I think we and a good few others poured money into it,is it still functioning? I would Google it if I could remember the name. Why didn't it blast the GPS system into orbit,not reliable enough?
