President Moon attended the launching of Nuri held at the Naro Space Center in Goheung County, South Jeolla Province, on October 21. Nuri was a rocket made solely by South Korean technologies. It went through twice engine sparks, rocket separation, parings and dummy satellite separation but failed to put dummy satellite into orbit. But it was meaningful to push it up to 700km above the Earth.
Moon encouraged researchers, experts and staff of more than 300 companies and organizations that involved in the launching preparations and processes and showed a deep respect. He said that aerospace technologies were highly protected by countries which have them already and it was really difficult for chasers to obtain; however, South Korea obtained the high precision rocket by our own hands which really was a good start.
He added the government would provide unsparing support with a long term perspective alongside transferring related technologies to private businesses to create and promote the industry in the nation.
South Korea targets to send a rocket to the moon by 2030 by our own hands.
