GPS satellite: Crowds watch as an Atlas V rocket lifts off from Complex 41 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station Wednesday in Cape Canaveral, Fla. The Atlas is carrying a GPS satellite. The GPS 2F-4 spacecraft will join a constellation of other satellites circling already orbiting 11,000 miles above Earth. The GPS satellite will provide navigation for both military and civilian users. (AP/Florida Today, Craig Rubadoux)
