South Korean space rocket positions for liftoff

Seoul, May 23 (BNA): South Korea has placed its homegrown space rocket, Nuri, on the launch pad at the Naro Space Center, one day before it is set to launch to send multiple satellites into orbit.

Nuri, also known as KSLV-II, arrived at the launch pad about an hour and a half after leaving the assembly building at 7:20 am. It was installed at the launch pad at the space center in the southern coastal village of Goheung, according to the Ministry of Science, Information and Communications Technology and the Korea Aerospace Research Institute (KARI), Yonhap reported.

The Ministry of Science and KARI will hold a launch management committee meeting later in the day to decide whether to go ahead with the launch scheduled for Wednesday.
