The Galileo satellite navigation system is the largest European industrial project currently being undertaken. From 2013, 30 satellites will provide terrestrial users with inch-perfect positioning technology. This is made possible with a new, absolutely accurate atomic clock, which enables synchronous signal transmission by the satellites. Credit: ESA.
