South Koreas 1st domestic rocket fails to put dummy satellite in orbit

South Korea launched its first homegrown rocket today, but failed to fully place a dummy satellite into orbit. The Korean Satellite Launch Vehicle II, known as Nuri, is designed to put 1.5-tonne payloads into orbit 600-800 kilometres above Earth. The 200-tonne rocket measures 47.2 metres in length and is fitted with six liquid-fuelled engines. .
