Oopsie!  A software bug put two of the (very expensive and vastly over-budget) Galileo satellites into the wrong orbit.  They are completely useless in this orbit, so they are a complete loss.  This is yet another blow to the European alternative geolocation service, which does basically the same thing as the American GPS.

Some poor programmer is in a world of hurt today, I'm sure...
