The third-stage engine of South Korea's first homegrown rocket, Nuri, shut down prematurely possibly due to low pressure in its oxidizer tank.
On Wednesday, the Ministry of Science and ICT along with the Korea Aerospace Research Institute along with outside experts met to discuss the ongoing review of the launch that happened two weeks ago.
According to the data seen so far, pressure in the oxidizer tanks was normal for the first two stage engines but too low for the third which caused a dip in speed.
More details are expected to be released in the coming month.
Nuri, a three stage engine rocket was able to reach its goal of 700 kilometers above Earth's surface but failed to place a dummy satellite into orbit due to its third stage engine shutting off prematurely.
