S. Korea's first lunar orbiter 'Danuri' heads to Florida launch site Updated: 2022-07-05 11:28:30 KST

South Korea's very first lunar orbiter 'Danuri' will begin its journey to its U.S. launch site on Wednesday. Danuri will move to Incheon Airport on Tuesday before being transported to Florida's Cape Canaveral Space Force Station early Wednesday morning. There, it will go through final checks ahead of its August 3rd launch date aboard a SpaceX Falcon rocket. The Korea Aerospace Research Institute said Danuri will enter the moon's orbit on December 16th to carry out a year-long mission, which will include searching for landing sites for future lunar missions. And if all goes well, South Korea's space agency will be the 7th to send an orbiter to the moon.
