The first stage of Korea's Naro rocket has been transported to the Naro Space Center in Goheung, South Jeolla Province for an expected launch in October.
The Ministry of Science, Education and Technology said the stage 1 rocket was manufactured at Russia's Khrunichev Space Center and arrived at Gimhae Airport on August 29th before being transferred by ship to the Naro Space Center.
The October launch will be the third attempt for the Naro rocket.
Two previous launches in 2009 and 2010 ended in failure due to technical problems.
With the arrival of the first stage, engineers will begin work on attaching it to the second stage, which was designed and built in Korea along with the Naro scientific satellite.
