Korea 25 daily launch vehicle, “Lo Lo” will be a satellite into space science and technology, the satellite failed to enter orbit has crashed. “Lo Lo” The construction cost of $ 402 million, of which 40% paid by the Russian side. Korean media that Korea and Russia may be disputes on liability issues.
fairing is not normal shedding
Korea 26 Satellite Technology Research Center, said the absence of precise satellite orbit, ground controllers failed and the satellite the same day contact. South Korea’s Minister of State Science and Technology Education 26 in Kim Jung-Yin told a news conference, Korea and Russia Joint Commission’s survey, the satellite can not normally fall off the side of the fairing, the fairing is because the weight of the satellite several times, resulting in two Rockets could not produce enough to thrust the satellite into orbit. Moreover, the extra weight also affects the stability and navigation system. Satellite into orbit rate is estimated to 6.2 km per second, and stay on track to get the satellite into orbit speed is at 8 km.
experts Puding Zhou Korea Aerospace Research Institute said, as if the satellite is ejected from the rocket hit the fairing, making it the ultimate fall. Pu Dingzhou suspect hit the satellite fairing vibration generated when the satellites may be damaged.
Australia found debris
satellite weighs 100 kilograms, it may have been falling to Earth burned in the atmosphere. South Korea has given up all efforts to find the satellite.
but South Korea, “Chosun Ilbo,” 26 reported that in Australia the outskirts of the northern city of Darwin, the satellite part of the fragments found in Korea, the Korean government and the Aerospace Research Institute is currently falling objects confirm the operation.
Korea Ministry of Science and Technology Education, a source, an object falling to Australia is likely to protect the two structures of the rocket combustion agent and said they were planning to go directly to the scene.
May next year to launch
fairing independently developed by the Korea, but Russia has provided technical support. South Korea and Russia, according to the agreement, and this launch in May next year, “Lo Lo” was the second test launch, even if there a “launch failure” South Korea will be free of a Russian rocket.
according to South Korean officials say that this launch of the “semi-success.” Analysis Yonhap, South Korea and Russia may dispute on liability issues.
Korea and Russia officials have publicly stated Russian-made rocket during launch an operating normally, however, the two sides formed a joint commission of inquiry did not disclose the satellite failed to enter orbit of the specific reasons.
Kim Jung-Yin said, “South Korea is responsible for fairing separation, while Russia is responsible for comprehensive technical support, shared responsibility between the two countries.” The two countries begin negotiations on the matter further.
the cooperation did not stop this. Korea Ministry of Science and Technology Education fairing not want to thoroughly investigate the reasons for the planned separation, in order to avoid a second trial in May next year launch the same mistakes.
