South Korea scrubs KSLV launch again
Posted: Thu, Nov 29, 2012, 6:41 AM ET (1141 GMT)
KSLV on pad for 2nd launch (KARI) South Korean engineers scrubbed Thursday a second attempt to launch a rocket, citing technical problems with the rocket's second stage. The Korea Space Launch Vehicle (KSLV)-1 rocket, also known as Naro-1, was to launch from South Korea's launch site, the Naro Space Center, at 2 am EST (0700 GMT, 4 pm local time) Thursday, but the countdown was halted 17 minutes before the scheduled liftoff time. Officials said they postponed the launch after receiving "anomalous" signals from the thrust vector system in the rocket's upper stage. No new launch date has been set. A previous launch attempt late last month was also scrubbed because of a faulty seal in the rocket's Russian-built lower stage. Two previous KSLV-1 launches, in 2009 and 2010, both failed.
