Galileo: the first ten years


Europe’s own satellite navigation system, Galileo, has become the world’s most precise, delivering metre-level accuracy, available anywhere on Earth. It is also saving lives, relaying distress calls for search and rescue. Today there are 26 Galileo satellites in orbit 23 222 km over our heads; the first of them were launched on 21 October 2011, with nine more launches in the following years. The satellites in space are supported by a globe-spanning ground segment. The system as a whole is set to grow, with the first of 12 ‘Batch 3’ about to join the current satellites in orbit and new ‘Galileo Second Generation’ satellites in development.

Galileo has been financed by the EU and developed by ESA, with services delivered by EUSPA.

  1. Protect Basic Human Rights
    End Roman Catholic Slavery
    Baptism leads to Indoctrination

    Give the People back their BASIC HUMAN RIGHT to choose their own religion.

    Make Baptism Illegal NOW!

    Preaching and teaching that innocent newborn babies are born with “original sin” is one of the oldest tricks in the book, and it is in direct contravention to the very first Article of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union:
    Article 1:
    “Human dignity is inviolable. It must be respected and protected.”

    Preaching and teaching that newborn babies are born with “original sin” is an attack on human dignity.
    That is a FACT.

    Every single human should have the BASIC HUMAN RIGHT to choose their own religion, and baptism of newborn babies into ANY organised religion should be made illegal IMMEDIATELY.

    The European Court of Justice and the International Court of Justice of the United Nations have let everyone down on this so far. And that is just not good enough.

    The leading Judicial Institutions of the World have a global responsibility to have the COURAGE to stand up to powerful institutions and forces in the world, and protect the BASIC HUMAN RIGHTS of the HUMAN MIND, and especially to protect the BASIC HUMAN RIGHTS of those who cannot protect themselves.

    The human race will only have a chance to reach its full potential when the shackles of organised religions have fallen from the human mind.

    Please like and share this post near and far, across the world, until there are global changes in this regard.

    Thank you

  2. Otra herramienta más hecha por el gobierno para los gobiernos. Siempre tienen una manera bien siniestra de demostrar como tenían otros planes vinculadas al control y al estado de vigilancia que quieren imponer sobre el globo…… es diferente cuando es una herramienta hecha por la gente para la gente con el mismo propósito. Esto es posible con es sistema blockchain. OVR
