South Korea's Maiden Space Rocket Fails To Put Payload In Orbit

South Korea conducted its first test launch into space of a domestically built rocket.

Seoul:

South Korea's first domestically-developed space rocket failed to put its dummy payload into orbit after its maiden launch on Thursday, President Moon Jae-in said.

The launch and all three stages of the Korea Space Launch Vehicle II worked, as did the payload separation, Moon said, but "putting a dummy satellite into orbit remains an unfinished mission".
