South Korean launch further delayed

KSLV on pad for 2nd launch (KARI) The launch of a South Korean rocket, already delayed because of a technical problem, has been pushed back again, officials said Wednesday. South Korea planned to launch the KSLV-1 rocket, also known as Naro-1, no later than November 24, but said that launch date would likely slip after the delayed shipment of a replacement part from Russia. Export control issues delayed the arrival of the part until at least Saturday; officials said they would need about 10 days to install the replacement part and prepare the vehicle for launch. The part, a connector between ground fueling systems and the rocket's Russian-built first stage, malfunctioned during an earlier launch attempt in late October, scrubbing that launch. This launch will be the third for the KSLV-1, after two previous ones failed.
