DLRmagazine 133 – 'Rumble in the jungle'

The cover of DLRmagazine issue 133 shows the Soyuz launch facility and a launcher being prepared for lift-off at Europe's Spaceport in French Guiana. The Soyuz is carrying the first two satellites for the Galileo global satellite navigation system – Europe's independent navigation system, which will comprise a total of 30 satellites when completed. The feature 'Rumble in the jungle' gives readers an introduction to the multi-launcher space centre at the edge of the tropical rain forest in South America and new insights into Europe's fascinating gateway to space.
