Preparations for Naro's Thursday Lift-off in Full Swing Updated: 2012-11-27 00:00:00 KST

Korea's Naro space rocket is finally ready to blast-off after ten years of preparation and two failed launch attempts.
The rocket was transferred to the launch pad this morning, after careful inspections that were completed Monday.
A final pre-launch rehearsal is scheduled for Wednesday, and the blast-off is set for Thursday.
If there are no additional technical problems, the launch will take place sometime between 4 and 6:55 P.M. local time, depending on the weather conditions that day.
Korea canceled the launch of the Naro rocket late last month, after detecting a gas leak in the helium injection system.
