South Korea's homegrown space rocket Nuri is moving towards its launch pad as we speak ahead of its second launch.
The rocket's being transported one.eight kilometers from where it was assembled on a carrier vehicle at a speed of one.five kilometers an hour.
Nuri's scheduled to reach the launch pad at around eight-thirty AM and be upright next to the umbilical tower at around 11 AM.
Engineers at the Naro Space Center in Goheung, Jeollanam-do Province will then connect the umbilical cables a process that'll be complete by 7 PM if all goes according to plan.
The cables will provide the rocket with fuel and oxidizers tomorrow before the launch.
