SpaceX will launch Europe’s communications satellites

Published

on

SpaceX, the private aerospace manufacturer and space transportation company led by Elon Musk, has reportedly secured a significant contract to launch up to four navigation and secure communications satellites for Europe.

The deal, which is poised to bolster Europe’s space endeavors, is still awaiting final approval from the European Commission, the executive arm of the European Union, in conjunction with EU member states. Citing officials close to the matter, the report highlights that these regulatory checks are the last remaining steps before the agreement can be formalized.

This latest development comes on the heels of an agreement recently inked between SpaceX and the European Space Agency (ESA), which outlines plans for two satellite launches scheduled for next year. Each launch will carry two Galileo satellites, a vital component of Europe’s navigation infrastructure. Javier Benedicto, the director of navigation at the European Space Agency, confirmed these details to The Wall Street Journal.

Under the terms of the agreement, the selected satellites will be transported into orbit using SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket. This collaboration marks another significant step in the expanding partnership between SpaceX and European space agencies.

As of now, neither SpaceX nor the European Commission has provided an official statement or comment regarding this new deal, leaving many in the industry eager to hear more about this exciting collaboration.

Donald Trump was whisked off the stage at a rally in Butler, Pennsylvania after loud noises rang through the crowd.

Trump was showing off a chart of border crossing numbers when bangs started ringing through the crowd. Trump could be seen reaching with his right hand toward his neck. There appeared to be blood on his face.

He quickly ducked behind the riser as agents from his protective detail rushed the stage and screams rang out from the crowd. The bangs continued as agents tended to him on stage.

His motorcade has left the venue.

In a statement, Trump says he is “fine” and says he is being checked at a medical facility.

Donald Trump was safe, the U.S. Secret Service and his campaign said on Saturday after multiple shots rang out at a rally by the Republican presidential candidate in Pennsylvania as video showed Trump grimacing and raising a hand to his right ear.
The former president had just started his speech when gunshots erupted and Trump and other rally attendees hit the deck. Secret Service agents swarmed around him and live video showed blood on the right side of Trump’s face and ear.
 
Trump repeatedly raised his fist in the air, with an American flag visible behind him, as security ushered him away.
“The Secret Service has implemented protective measures and the former president is safe,” a spokesperson for the agency said on X after what it called an incident.
“This is now an active Secret Service investigation and further information will be released when available.”
