South Korea rocket launch naudlot
MULING ipinagpaliban ng South Korea ang dapat sana’y pagpapalipad nito ng sattelite ngayong hapon dahil sa nakitang “leak” ng rocket na gagamitin sa launching.
Base sa pahayag ni Education, Science and Technology vice minsiter Cho Yul-rae, aabot ng tatlong araw bago makumpuni ang sira ng Korea Space Launch Vehicle-1 (KSLV-1).
“A leak has been detected from a connection between the first-stage rocket of the KSLV-1 and the launch pad.”
Nakita ang leak makaraang magsagawa ng final inspection sa space rocket kung saan nagkaroon ng loss of pressure sa laman nitong helium.
Unang inanunsyo na magsasagawa ng launching ng naturang rocket mamayang alas-2:00 ng hapon.
“Once the rocket is taken down from the launch pad, the launch date is automatically reset to D-2, as it takes at least two days to prepare for a launch..If the problem is easily fixed, it could take three days from now to launch the rocket. But if the problem is more complicated than we currently suspect, it might take more time.”
