VLADIVOSTOK. August 24. VOSTOK-MEDIA – The launch of the First Korea Space Launch Vehicle NARO, which will set a scientific satellite into orbit, is scheduled for tomorrow, August 25, reported Vice Minister of Education, Science and Technology Jung Hyun Kim on Friday.
The Deputy Minister stated that the technical glitch that had forced South Korea to abort its launch on the 19th of August had been eliminated and now all launch vehicle systems are operating normally. The liftoff was postponed because of the malfunction, which was detected in the software of the automatic sequence control system designed for checking condition of the high-pressure propellant container. The rocket was transferred to the launching platform on Sunday. But before the launch it will be double-tested, reported KBS World radio station.
