South Korea reschedules launch

KSLV-1 launch vehicle (KARI) South Korean officials said Friday that they have rescheduled the launch of the first orbital rocket to August 25. The launch of the Korea Space Launch Vehicle 1 (KSLV-1) was scheduled for Wednesday, but was scrubbed about eight minutes before liftoff when pressure dropped in a helium tank in the vehicle. Engineers traced the problem to a software glitch that misinterpreted sensor data. The rocket, also known as Naro-1, is South Korea's first attempt to launch a satellite into orbit. It will carry a small experimental satellite into low Earth orbit.
