Final Naro Launch Slated for Wednesday Afternoon

      January 29, 2013 11:43

      Korea's homegrown space rocket was put upright on the launch pad at the Naro Space Center in Goheung, South Jeolla Province on Monday, two days before the scheduled third and last launch attempt.

      The rocket, dubbed Naro, is now expected to lift off around 4 p.m. on Wednesday after a final rehearsal Tuesday.

      The rocket failed to reach orbit in the first two attempts.

      The third attempt was aborted twice last year when faults were found at the last minute.
