South Korea's space rocket Nuri is back up on its launch pad.
Earlier on this Monday NURI was transported 1.8 kilometers on a carrier vehichle from where it was assembled to where it will take off for a second time on Tuesday afternoon.
Engineers at the Naro Space Center in Goheung Jeollanam-do Province are expected to connect Nuri to its umbilical cables by 7 P.M. this evening.
These cables link Nuri to the control room and will provide the rocket with fuel and oxidizers in the hours before the launch.
