      The government has selected "Naro" as the name for Korea's first space rocket, the KSLV-1, which will be launched in late July. The Ministry of Education, Science and Technology on Sunday said the choice was the result of public suggestions.

      It is taken from Oenaro [outer Naro] Island in Goheung, South Jeolla Province, home of the Naro Space Center, from where the rocket carrying Korea's Science and Technology Satellite 2 will be launched.
