Seoul, Korea – A failure in a rubber seal delayed the launch of Korea’s Naro space rocket on 26 October. New parts are being shipped from Russia and the launch is likely to go ahead soon after the parts have been fitted. This was the third failed attempt by Korea to get a rocket into space.
The seal was designed to contain helium gas. The gas was seen to be leaking as it was being charged prior to the launch last month.
