South Korea hey! The second self-propelled rocket successfully delivered, after failing eight months ago.
On June 21, Reuters reported that South Korea has conducted a test launch of the Nuri rocket. The second time produced in the country on the same day. After the first test attempt of the Nuri rocket eight months ago, although the rocket successfully took off from the launch pad. But it was unable to bring the simulated satellite into orbit.
Nuri rocket launch test which in Korean means “Earth”, this second time was held at the Naro Space Center. It is located on the south coast of South Korea at 4 p.m. local time. Officials expect to know within an hour whether the rocket’s payload has successfully entered orbit.
The three-stage KSLV-II Nuri rocket, designed by the Korea Aerospace Research Institute (KARI) to bring a payload of 1.5 tons into an orbit 600-800 km above Earth, is a three-stage KSLV-II Nuri rocket designed by the Korea Aerospace Research Institute (KARI). It will be the cornerstone of South Korea’s plans to launch a space program and achieve ambitious goals for 6G spy satellite networks. including the lunar probe
South Korea’s first test launch of the Nuri rocket took place in October last year. The rocket successfully flew. but not able to bring the loaded simulated satellite into orbit After the third engine shuts down faster than planned. which the Yonhap news agency reported Engineers have adjusted the helium tank inside the oxidizer tank in the Part 3 rocket to fix the problem.
The stakes in today’s test are even higher. Because in addition to carrying a simulated satellite Nuri is also carrying the rocket’s performance monitoring satellite and four cubic satellites developed by universities for research, Kari said, adding that it plans to conduct at least four more rocket tests by 2027.
The Nuri rocket is key to South Korea’s plans to build a Korean satellite navigation system and 6G communications network, with South Korea also planning to launch a military satellite. However, officials denied that the Nuri rocket was used as a weapon.
Recently, South Korean Minister of Science, Lee Jong-ho, said that the second test of the Nuri rocket was a success. The Nuri rocket can bring the simulated satellite into orbit as planned.
