Galileo [electronic resource]: Europe's Satellite Program Falls Victim to International Wrangling

Galileo is Europe's ambitious satellite navigation project, designed to rival the American GPS, and invigorate European transport and communications infrastructure. Given the control which satellite navigation has over modern society, a question mark always lay over the wisdom of allowing America a monopoly on the technology. Thus, Galileo came into being. While it seemed to offer massive potential for modernization of Europe's communication system and started as an exciting, forward-looking scheme, before long it descended into farce, the result of clever American diplomatic maneuvering and destructive inter-European wrangling. From conspiracy theories to question marks over the future of the E.U. as a viable body, Galileo is a yarn worthy of its controversial namesake.
