Rather than carry a significant amount of extra fuel to insert themselves into their planned orbits – like typical telecommunications satellites or Galileo’s US GPS equivalents – the Galileo satellites are transported to medium orbit by the Fregat fourth stage of their Soyuz ST-B launcher.Read more: http://www.laboratoryequipment.com/news/2012/10/twin-galileo-satellites-are-fueled-ready-launch
