South Korea is spurring development of private-led space rocket engines and satellites that leads the space industry.  Nuri was launched amid a huge fiery blaze. It was the first rocket fitted with an engine developed with Korea’s own technology. This is the private enterprise that led the rocket development program.

Some twenty years after Korea started developing rocket engines, this company grew to become Korea’s only maker of mid-to-large-sized rocket engines. The growth was spurred on by the company’s knowledge in aircraft engine manufacturing. Engineers at this company are putting together an engine for the fourth launch of Nuri scheduled for next year.
