China News Service, June 15. According to Yonhap News Agency, due to abnormal data, the launch of the South Korean-made carrier rocket "World" originally scheduled to be launched on the 16th was postponed again.

Data map: The "World" carrier rocket is erected on the launch pad.

  According to reports, the Korea Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics said on the 15th that preparations for the launch of the "World" cannot continue, and the launcher will be re-transferred to the assembly room.

  The research institute said that the sensor inside the "World" oxidant tank has abnormal values, and it needs to be checked as soon as possible.

  Previously, due to weather, the launch of the "World" was postponed from the 15th to the 16th.

  According to previous reports, on October 21, 2021, the "World" carrier rocket was ignited and launched.

The rocket completed all flight procedures normally, but failed to send the model satellite it carried into the intended orbit.

The Korean Ministry of Science, Technology, Information and Communications and the Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics announced the results of the investigation, which showed that the helium tank fell off mainly because the fixing device inside the rocket's third-stage engine was loosened.

  "World" is a three-stage launch vehicle with a total weight of 200 tons, which can send 1.5-ton satellites to orbits 600 to 800 kilometers above the ground.
