  1. Meter range is impressive, but it took ages to pull this project off. How does it work? How do I recognize that I'm using Galileo? Does my phone accept Galileo by default? Can I upgrade it or do I have to get a new phone? What apps/services are set up with this system?

  2. ESA adoro estes vídeos incríveis de informação e como estamos conectados ….todos os caminhos vão dar a Galileu e como o mecanismo de complexidade em que o tempo se torna em distância …e o mundo gira com facilidade! Fenomenal e intrínseca ..tecnológia e ciência(devemos tanto à ciência)!?!!!
