S. Korea begins developing 100-ton liquid rocket engine as part of 2022 'Space Challenge' Updated: 2022-02-08 17:10:59 KST

South Korea has officially started developing a high-performance, liquid-fuel rocket engine laying the foundations for successful space launches in the future.
The Ministry of Science and ICT announced this year's agenda on Tuesday under its "Space Challenge" to manufacture technology and core components required for a 100-ton liquid-fuel engine.
This comes after the country launched Nuri last year its first homegrown space rocket which successfully reached its targeted altitude.
But after its third-stage engine burned out sooner than expected Nuri failed to put a dummy satellite into orbit.
The project is also seen as crucial for South Korea's plans for a lunar landing by the year 2030 and its space navigation system, KPS, by 2035.
