    Galileo down

    Good thing we have the Russians and the Americans delivering GPS services because the European one has just crashed. All satellites are off-line.

    They say it will be back up before the end of the weekend though.

    Shows again that every system can fail and that you cannot build reliable systems when you depend on a single point of failure.

    they finally managed to get it working again: https://www.gsa.europa.eu/newsroom/n...-been-restored

    They also plan (or do) offer a high precision commerical services via galileo. The commercial customers would not be too happy if you base your products on a service that is down for one week.
