Korea's first space launch vehicle,.. the Naro will likely return to its launch pad as early as this month, after the country's third attempt to send the rocket into orbit last November was called off due to a technical failure.
The Ministry of Education, Science and Technology says the Launch Preparation Committee will hold a meeting next week to set the blast-off date and back-up dates.
Officials say technical faults in the Naro rocket have been completely repaired and checked, and the first and second stage of the rocket will be re-assembled next week.
