Nuri Rocket Launch Postponed due to Communication Anomaly between Launch Control Computer and Launch Pad Control Computer
The Ministry of Science and ICT and the Korea Aerospace Research Institute have decided to postpone the scheduled launch of the Nuri Rocket's third mission today (May 24) due to a communication anomaly between the launch control computer and the launch pad control computer during the launch preparation process.
Yesterday (May 23), one day before the launch, the Nuri Rocket was transferred to the launch pad and erected, and umbilicals for supplying power to the rocket were connected. On the day of the launch, today, at 12:24 PM, the launch operations procedure was initiated, but at 3 PM, an anomaly was detected.
Currently, the research team is investigating the cause of the communication anomaly and considering solutions. Once the cause analysis and necessary measures for the anomaly are completed, the launch will be rescheduled.
Deputy Minister Oh Tae-seog of the Ministry of Science and ICT stated, "In order to ensure a safe and successful launch of the Nuri Rocket, we plan to hold a launch management committee on the morning of the 25th to comprehensively review the situation and announce the launch schedule again."
