On the local front.
South Korea has been postponed indefinitely a second launch of its own space vehicle owing to a technical glitch.
NURI was initially scheduled to blast off at 4 PM on Thursday but the launch was called off on Wednesday amid a glitch in the oxidizer level sensor in the rocket's first stage.
The glitch could NOT be addressed at the launch pad and NURI was returned to the assembly site.
Engineers have yet to identify the cause behind the glitch and accordingly a new launch date has yet to be decided.
