South Korea launches first space rocket
South Korea has introduced its first homegrown house rocket Nuri in the country’s initially foray into area, according to ANU cosmologist and astrophysicist Dr Brad Tucker.
“South Korea, they are regarded for clearly staying a technological powerhouse, they have not been as big in room – and when we say area, definitely launching and putting factors up,” he explained to Sky Information Australia.
Dr Tucker mentioned some of South Korea’s neighbours had now had their own launches but South Korea experienced been equipped to endeavor it.
“They’ve had a number of attempts at rocket launches ahead of but all those rockets didn’t reach area,” he said.
“Nuri, as you claimed, did arrive at orbit so it did attain its height that it was aiming for.”
Dr Tucker reported the launch did not “perfectly go to plan” as South Korea wanted to test putting a satellite into orbit in a individual area but it did not close up where by supposed.
“They made a major move in that correct course, seriously striving to demonstrate that they can do it as a homegrown field, basically, not just relying on their satellites likely on an additional region but undertaking it themselves,” he said.
