South Korea's first homegrown space rocket Nuri fails to put dummy satellite into orbit
Oct 21, 2021 | Channel News Asia
South Korea has suffered a setback in its attempt to join the space race. It has launched its first homegrown space rocket Nuri, but its maiden mission failed to put a dummy satellite into orbit. The country plans to conduct further launches of Nuri in 2022. South Korea has come a long way since its first satellite booster Naro -- developed with help from Russia -- was launched in 2013. For 12 years, South Korea worked on the Nuri rocket, which cost about two trillion won, or $1.6 billion.
