According to the Ministry of Science and ICT and Korea Aerospace Research Institute, the engine fully-combusted for one-hundred-fifty-one seconds, eleven seconds longer than what the team considers a successful run.

"On Wednesday at 4 p.m. Korea time, the rocket engine was successfully launched from the Naro Space Center in Goheung, Jeollanam-do Province."

The rocket flew for about ten minutes.
It reached a peak altitude of roughly 200 kilometers after some three hundred seconds into flight before splashing down in international waters off the southeastern coast of Jeju-do Island.
The engine, is nearly twenty-six meters high, three meters wide, and weighs in at fifty-two tons.

The engine launch is a trial run for the country's second carrier rocket known as Korea Space Launch Vehicle 2 or Nuri, meaning "the world" in ancient Korean.
Nuri is a three-stage vehicle developed entirely with homegrown technology using 75 ton force engines to launch satellites into the orbit in 2021.

Wednesday's test launch was for only the second-stage of the Nuri's propulsion, with the first and third-stage engines to be tested starting early next year.
