Beijing, Oct. 21 (Xinhua) the South Korean launch vehicle “Nuri” will be launched on the afternoon of the 21st local time, according to a report by South Korean radio international on the 21st. “World” is the first rocket developed entirely using Korean technology. The whole project takes 11 years and the total investment is nearly 2 trillion won

it is reported that the specific launch time of the “world” will be finalized one hour before the launch depending on factors such as ground weather, wind speed over 10km and the possibility of conflict with cosmic objects. At present, it is most likely to launch at 4 p.m. local time

“world” is a three-stage rocket, which can send a 1.5-ton practical satellite to a low orbit 600 to 800 kilometers from the ground. The “world” will be launched with a model satellite. After the separation of the primary booster, the fairing and the secondary booster, it will enter orbit. The whole process is expected to take 16 minutes and 07 seconds
