SEOUL, July 11 (Itar-Tass) - South Korea has brought its multipurpose satellite Arirang-5 to the Yasny space launching complex in the Orenburg region to be launched into space in August, the South Korea Science Ministry said on Thursday.
After a two-year delay the launching of the South Korean space apparatus was scheduled for August 22. The satellite was to have been launched to the near-Earth orbit in 2011, but, according to the South Korean source, the launching was postponed because of problems at the Russian space launching complex.
