South Korean space rocket positions for liftoff

South Korea positioned its homegrown space rocket Nuri on the launch pad at the Naro Space Center, a day ahead of its liftoff to send multiple satellites into orbit.

Nuri, also known as KSLV-II, reached the launch pad about an hour and a half after it left an assembly building at 7:20 am. and was erected at the launch pad at the space center in the southern coastal village of Goheung, according to the Ministry of Science and ICT and the Korea Aerospace Research Institute (KARI), YONHAP reported.

The science ministry and KARI will hold a launch management committee meeting later in the day to decide whether to proceed with Wednesday’s scheduled launch.
