South Korea Launches First Civilian Rocket Amid Tensions With North ....
By Reuters (via AW&ST) - January 30, 2013

South Korea launched its first space rocket carrying a science satellite on Wednesday amid heightened regional tensions, caused in part, by North Korea’s successful launch of its own rocket last month.

It was South Korea’s third attempt to launch a civilian rocket to send a satellite in orbit in the past four years and came after two previous launches were aborted at the eleventh hour last year due to technical glitches.

The launch vehicle, named Naro, lifted off from South Korea’s space center on the south coast and successfully went through stage separation before entering orbit, officials at the mission control said. Previous launches failed within minutes.

South Korea’s rocket program has angered neighbor North Korea, which says it is unjust for it to be singled out for U.N. sanctions for launching long-range rockets as part of its space program to put a satellite into orbit.

North Korea’s test in December showed it had the capacity to deliver a rocket that could travel 10,000 km (6,200 miles), potentially putting San Francisco in range, according to an intelligence assessment by South Korea.

However, it is not believed to have the technology to deliver a nuclear warhead capable of hitting the continental United States.

The test in December was considered a success, at least partially, by demonstrating an ability to put an object in space.

But the satellite, as claimed by the North, is not believed to be functioning.

South Korea is already far behind regional rivals China and Japan in the effort to build space rockets to put satellites into orbit and has relied on other countries, including Russia, to launch them.

Launch attempts in 2009 and 2010 ended in failure.

The first stage booster of the South Korean rocket was built by Russia. South Korea has produced several satellites and has relied on other countries to put them in orbit.

South Korea wants to build a rocket on its own by 2018 and eventually send a probe to the moon.

Dal "Daily Report" dell' AFA di questa mattina .... bhf5g7_th.jpg



Third Time's a Charm:
South Korea launched a rocket on Wednesday that reportedly put a scientific satellite in orbit, marking the first time that the country has successfully placed a satellite in space from its own territory, reported the Los Angeles Times.
This makes South Korea the 13th nation with this capability, according to the Times' Jan. 30 report.
The Naro launch vehicle blasted off about 4:00 p.m. South Korea time from a space center in Jeolla on the country's southwestern coast.
South Korea has heretofore relied on other nations to place its satellites in orbit.
Its previous two attempts to place a satellite in orbit from its territory—the first in 2009 and the second in 2010—both failed, reported Reuters (via NBC News).
South Korea's launch success comes on the heels of North Korea's mid-December launch of an Unha-3 rocket that also reportedly succeeded in orbiting a small-sized satellite, the first such success for the communist nation.

Un successo messo in ombra da fattori geopolitici ....



How geopolitical factors overshadow South Korea’s space success ....
The Korean peninsula is facing a crisis caused in part by nuclear and rocket technologies Anxieties in the region were accentuated on December 12, 2012, with North Korea's rocket launch. It was actually a satellite launch, but many in the world viewed it as a camouflaged ballistic missile launch. The situation has worsened with North Korea recently announcing its plans to undertake a nuclear test. On January 27, Japan launched two surveillance satellites intended in part to keep a closer eye on North Korea. Amongst all this, South Korea launched the first satellite from its soil on January 30.

I satelliti in orbita terrestre cominciano ad essere davvero tanti,penso che occorrerò prima o poi un "contingentamento" dei lanci,per impedire pericolosi intasamenti delle orbite disponibili,che-nonostante lo spazio sia vastissimo- alla ine giacciono in zone molto ristrette
