South Korea's 1st Domestically Built Space Rocket 'Fails'
The Three stage KSLV-II Nuri rocket was launched from Nero space station which was designed to put 1.5 tonne payload into the orbit, but failed to reach its target. President Moon Joe-In said, "the rocket completed its flight sequences, but failed to test payload into the orbit". Officials commented that the final stage of the rocket appeared to be shut 40-50 seconds earlier, hence it did not reach the target.
