North Korea Says Satellite Launch Failed, To Carry Out Another Launch Soon

North Korea said its attempt to launch the Chollima-1 satellite vehicle rocket to deliver a reconnaissance satellite into orbit failed Wednesday due to a failure in the second stage of the rocket engine, the state-run Korean Central news Agency (KCNA) reported.

Pyongyang launched the rocket with the Malligyong-1 military reconnaissance satellite at 6:27 a.m. local time (21:27 GMT on Tuesday), the report said. The problem occurred when the second stage of the rocket engine failed to ignite.

After the separation of the first stage, the engine of the second stage failed to ignite, causing the rocket to lose thrust and fall into the Yellow Sea, the report said.

North Korea's space agency will take urgent scientific and technical measures to specifically investigate and correct the issues in the satellite vehicle rocket and will carry out the next launch as soon as possible after various tests, the media reported.

  1. The South Korean military was working to extract from the waters of the Yellow Sea a suspected part of a North Korean rocket that was expected to put a new military reconnaissance satellite into orbit, the South Korean Joint Chiefs of Staff said Wednesday.

    "Today, on May 31, around 8:05 a.m. (local time, 23:05 GMT on Tuesday), the South Korean military identified in the sea about 200 kilometers (124 miles) west of Eocheong Island presumably a part of what North Korea claims to be a 'carrier rocket' and is raising it," the military said in a statement.
