Transfer of Nuri Rocket Begins toward Launch Pad
The Ministry of Science and ICT and the Korea Aerospace Research Institute announced today that the transfer of the Nuri Rocket has commenced at 7:20 AM. The transfer process is expected to take approximately one hour. After arriving at the launch pad, the Nuri Rocket will undergo the vertical integration process and be erected on the launch pad during the morning. In the afternoon, preparations such as connecting the umbilical for power and propellant (fuel, oxidizer) charging and conducting a final inspection will be carried out. The Ministry of Science and ICT plans to hold the "Nuri Rocket Launch Management Committee" tomorrow afternoon to determine whether the propellant should be loaded onto the Nuri Rocket. They will comprehensively review the technical readiness, weather conditions, launch window, and the possibility of collision with space objects to decide the launch time for the Nuri Rocket.
