South Korea launches space rocket carrying satellite
South Korea says its third attempt at launching a rocket to put a satellite in space has been a success.

The Korea Space Launch Vehicle-1 (KSLV-1) blasted off from the Naro Space Center at 16:00 (07:00 GMT).

Science Minister Lee Ju-ho said the satellite, which will collect climate data, was in its correct orbit.

The launch comes weeks after North Korea used its own three-stage rocket to place a satellite into orbit, sparking international criticism.

South Korea's 140-tonne rocket, known as Naro, was built in partnership with Russia, which had agreed to work with Seoul for three launch attempts.

Previous launches in 2009 and 2010 failed, and this attempt had been postponed twice for technical reasons.

But officials said Wednesday's launch from the site 480km (298 miles) south of Seoul had gone as planned and that the rocket had reached its target altitude and deployed its satellite.

"After analysing various data, the Naro rocket successfully put the science satellite into designated orbit," Mr Lee told reporters. He said the satellite had detached 540 seconds after launch.

"We now have leapt up a step to become a space-power nation," he said, adding that South Korea would use this "overwhelming moment as a strong, dynamic force" to help drive an independent space programme.

Re: South Korea launches space rocket carrying satellite
Ihad wondered why there was no major MSM and even iMSM (iMSM is my new term for all blogs, news sites, conspiracy sites, rumors, and such reports that have over 1,000 viewers per hour or more, the Interent Main Stream Media, i.e. the iMSM)...

I had wondered how this pretty much fell off of nearly every one's viewscopes on the buzzes of hype.

So, who knows South Korea has nuclear power plants does it not? That means that it now has the capacitity to nuke teh USA just as well as N.K. (once S.K. builds its own House Atomics, like many in Japan are wanting to do as well. Oh, Japan also launces satellites, go figure).

So, perhaps, yeah..perhaps...
