Welcome South Korea to the Club of Space Faring Nations

Congratulations to South Korea on their first successful rocket launch.

South Korea launches first rocket into space

It is South Korea’s first launch of a rocket from its own territory. Since 1992, it has launched 11 satellites, all on foreign-made rockets sent from overseas sites.

The rocket, built with Russian help, was carrying a domestically built satellite aimed at observing the atmosphere and ocean.
