KARI: No Need to Play Blame Game, Third Launch Will Take Place Updated: 2010-06-14 00:00:00 KST

While there has been speculation as to whether Korea will even get a third chance to launch its two-stage satellite carrier Naro the Korea Aerospace Research Institute says such rumors are unwarranted.
According to the state-run aerospace institute it does not matter who is responsible for the failure of the second launch attempt of Naro the third launch will take place irrespective of liability.
KARI added that there is no need to play the blame game as the 2002 contract between Korea and Russia clearly states that if the launch fails even once out of the two times Korea has the right to request a third launch from Russia.
The institute also explained the only instance when the responsible party must be identified is when the rocket fails to place the satellite into the target orbit.
