The European Commission is finalizing a deal to launch four Galileo navigation satellites on a pair of Falcon 9 rockets next year. At briefings during the European Space Summit Tuesday, the EU commissioner responsible for space said the upcoming completion of a security agreement was the final milestone to a deal that would see the satellites launched in April and July of 2024 by SpaceX. The EU will pay 180 million euros ($192 million) for the launches. Europe was forced to turn to SpaceX because of continued delays in the development of the Ariane 6.
