South Korea was preparing Monday for its third
attempt to launch a rocket into space.
It was due to be fuelled and tested before blasting off Wednesday, weather permitting, the Korea Aerospace Research Institute was quoted as saying by Yonhap News Agency.
If successful, the launch of the Russian-built KSLV-1 would make South Korea the 13th nation to put a rocket into space from its own territory, after attempts in 2009 and 2010 failed.
The country's 10 orbiting satellites were launched from abroad with foreign rockets.
