During the mission, Danuri will test a wireless internet technology in lunar orbit. As part of the demonstration, it will stream the song “Dynamite”

U.S. President Biden promised to expand space cooperation with South Korea during his visit to the country this month. In his election manifesto, South Korea’s newly-elected President Yoon Suk-yeol pledged to make South Korea “one of seven most advanced space powers in the world by 2035,” through efforts such as the facilitation of public-to-private transfer of space technologies and broadening the country’s role in NASA’s Artemis Program.

South Korea’s KSLV-2 rocket launches seven satellites, one unaccounted for
https://spacenews.com/south-koreas-kslv … unted-for/

South Korea’s KSLV-2 rocket put seven satellites, including one equipped with synthetic aperture radar, into sun-synchronous orbit May 25, although an eighth cubesat is believed to have not deployed properly.

The primary payload was NEXTSat-2, a 180-kilogram technology demonstration satellite developed by the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST). It hosts a set of scientific payloads, including a KAIST-developed synthetic aperture radar that can produce imagery with five-meter resolution and a swath width of 40 kilometers.

South Korea was the 3rd largest world producer of bismuth, the 4th largest world producer of rhenium, and the 10th largest world producer of sulfur. During the 1970s and 1980s, South Korea became a leading producer of ships, including oil supertankers, and oil-drilling platforms. Despite the South Korean economy's high growth and structural stability, South Korea experiences damages to its credit rating in the stock market due to North Korea in times of military crises. The recurring conflict affects the financial markets of its economy. Korea's largest construction companies include Samsung C&T Corporation, which built some of the highest building's and most noteworthy skyscrapers such as three consecutively world's tallest buildings: Petronas Towers, Taipei 101, and Burj Khalifa. In 1990, South Korean manufacturers planned a shift in future production plans toward high-technology industries.

North Korea will launch its first military reconnaissance satellite in June for monitoring U.S. activities, state media KCNA reported on Tuesday, drawing criticism over its potential use of banned missile technology. Ri Pyong Chol, vice-chairman of the Central Military Commission of the North's ruling Workers' Party, denounced ongoing joint military exercises by the U.S. and South Korea as openly showing "reckless ambition for aggression."

Two English Companies are Cooperating to Bring a Novel Antenna Architecture To Space
https://www.universetoday.com/161920/tw … -to-space/
Technology Readiness Levels (or TRLs) are commonly used in the space industry to determine what level of development a technology has undergone. For space technologies, eventually, they get to a TRL where they have to be used in space. In some cases, that can be difficult, as getting a ride on a launch is both risky and expensive. So it’s good news for Oxford Space Systems (OSS) that they penned an agreement with Surrey Satellites Technology Ltd (SSTL) to prove one of their new technologies on an actual flight.

NEE-01 Pegaso is an Ecuadorian technology demonstration satellite, and Ecuador's first satellite launched to space. Built by the Ecuadorian Civilian Space Agency (EXA), it is a nanosatellite of the single-unit CubeSat class. While originally planned to be orbited by a Russian Dnepr, delays with the rocket forced EXA to move the satellite's launch to China. The satellite operated normally until 23 May 2013; at approximately 05:38 UTC, Pegaso passed very close to the spent upper stage of a 1985 Tsyklon-3 rocket over the Indian Ocean. While there was no direct collision between the satellite and upper stage, Pegaso is believed to have suffered a "glancing blow" after passing through a debris cloud around the Tsyklon stage and striking one of the small pieces

KAI poised to repeat success with satellite exports
https://www.koreaherald.com/view.php?ud=20230514000117
The consecutive successes of South Korea’s Nuri rocket and Danuri lunar orbiter opened a new space era for the country’s space road map last year. The Korean government and President Yoon Suk Yeol set out ambitious goals of landing on the moon in 2032 and on Mars in 2045, signaling the beginning of the space economy. Korea Aerospace Industries, which has played an essential role in the country’s recent space milestones, is now aiming to expand its space businesses with a focus on large satellites.

KAI’s space center, which opened in August 2020, is capable of building six 1.5-ton-satellites at once with over 500 R&D personnel working at the facility. The space center is the single largest R&D site in the country, according to the official.

KAI has completed the development of the second next-generational medium-sized satellite known as Compact Advanced Satellites 500 or CAS 500 which indicates its weight of 500 kg. The company is currently developing three more CAS 500s, which will serve different purposes including conducting space science research and collecting agricultural, territorial and water resources data for the Rural Development Administration, Korea Forest Service and the Ministry of Environment.

According to Lee, all of the four satellites are set to be launched into space before the end of 2026.

“Once the satellites are up in space by 2026, our goal is to sign an export contract within one year of the launch. Most of the countries to which KAI is exporting aircraft are hoping to utilize satellites. The need for wanting to use space assets for the sake of offering public services is growing,” he said.

Re: Space fairing Nations - The ever changing view

very detailed article

A space race on the Korean Peninsula
https://www.reuters.com/graphics/NORTHK … pxrybdlpx/


    The rival space programmes of Seoul and Pyongyang have had an eventful year: on May 25, South Korea for the first time used an indigenous launch vehicle to place a mission-capable satellite in orbit, and a few days later, North Korea launched a new rocket design from a new facility.

    Although the North Korean Chollima-1 rocket failed, analysts expect the country to push forward with further tests and eventually make good on its vow to place spy satellites in orbit.

    South Korea is testing both solid- and liquid-fuelled launch vehicles, with lofty ambitions for 6G wireless networks, spy satellites, and even lunar probes.

    Both countries’ programmes lag behind those of their neighbours Japan and China, and both have linked rockets to national pride, with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un calling space “a demonstration of the overall national power” and former South Korean President Moon Jae-in saying the first launch of the Nuri rocket in 2021 heralded the approach of a “'Korea Space Age”.

Russia’s Moon Probe Failure: Why and What Next?
https://www.leonarddavid.com/russias-mo … what-next/

Russia’s revamping of Moon exploration is off to a rocky start – the plunge from lunar orbit of the country’s Luna-25 spacecraft, destroying itself as it crashed into the Moon’s bleak landscape.

Head of Russia’s Roscosmos, Yuri Borisov, reports that the main cause of the Luna-25’s failed mission was an engine failure. Instead of a planned propulsive nudge of 84 seconds, the engine operated for 127 seconds, more than the “required value” in readying the probe for its descent burn. This added impulse to Russia’s Luna-25 led to it crashing into the Moon, Borisov told Rossiya 24 television.

“Russian space spending now lags far behind the U.S., China, Europe and even Japan,”
