A Europeanized Russian Soyuz rocket on May 24 successfully placed two European Galileo positioning, navigation and timing satellites into medium-Earth orbit – the 13th and 14th in a series of 26 Galileo spacecraft, with more to come.
A Europeanized Russian Soyuz rocket equipped with a Fregat upper stage on Sept. 11 successfully placed two European Galileo positioning, navigation and timing satellites into medium-Earth orbit, with two more scheduled for launch in December aboard a Soyuz.
NASA formally notified Congress Aug. 5 that it is issuing a $490 million extension of an existing contract to purchase Soyuz seats from the Russian space agency, saying that it was forced to do so because of cuts in the agency’s commercial crew program.

Less than two weeks after the head of NASA said he hoped commercial crew vehicles would allow NASA to stop paying for Soyuz flights to and from the International Space Station after 2017, the agency revealed plans to procure seats on Soyuz missions in 2018 as a hedge against potential delays.
Hedging its bets on commercial crew, NASA's Johnson Space Center on Feb. 6 issued a formal notice of its intent to buy six more seats on Russian Soyuz spacecraft bound for the International Space Station in 2018.
