A rocket launch from Goheung county's Naro Space Center (나로우주센터) is scheduled for Wednesday, June 9th at roughly 5 p.m., writes the Dong-A Ilbo:
The exact launch time will be announced at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday. The Education, Science and Technology Ministry will set the time after studying the rehearsal results the day before launch, weather conditions on launch day, solar activities, and the time zone where space objects could collide.
The expected time is between 4:30 p.m. and 6:40 p.m., and the launch is highly likely to take place at 5 p.m. like last year.
A technical problem meant a delay on Monday and might mean one tomorrow as well, writes the Korea Herald
The fully assembled Korea Space Launch Vehicle-1, also called Naro-1, was taken out of the assembly building at 8:15 a.m. and reached the launch pad at 9:40 a.m. Monday, according to the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology and the Korean Aerospace Research Institute.
The rocket complex was supposed to be erected and fixed against the pad by 3:30 p.m., but the schedule was delayed as some technical problems were found in the first-stage rocket.
"We had to disassemble, analyze and reassemble the Ground Measurement System of the first-stage rocket to fix the instable electronic signals detected," said an official of the KARI.
The delayed erecting process started at 8:55 p.m. and the Naro team continued the inspection until late night, according to the KARI.
However, most of the recent articles---ones more recent than those in the Herald and Times, written the day before---say the launch will go as planned on Wednesday.
Naver is marking the occassion, just like last time.
The launch last summer was delayed seven times before lifting off on August 25th but ultimately failed to deploy the satellite.
