A typographical error appeared in the authorization and public notice text for the grant of the application of GeoEye License Corp. to add
authority to launch and operate an additional Earth Exploration Satellite Service space station, GeoEye-2, as part of its
non-geostationary-orbit satellite system. See Public Notice, DA 12-1629, SAT Report No. SAT-00904 (rel. Oct. 12, 2012). The correct
