South Korea launched on Thursday its first homegrown rocket.

The Nuri blasted off from the Naro Space Center in Goheung, in the south of the country, late this afternoon.

After a detailed analysis by the Korea Aerospace Research Institute, President Moon Jae-in said the rocket completed all flight sequences but failed to put its dummy satellite into orbit.

He also noted Nuri reached an altitude of 700 kilometers, calling it an amazing feat.

The president then vowed a successful launch when the rocket is tested next in May 2022.

South Korea had aimed to become the world's seventh country to launch a rocket that has the independent capability of placing an over 1-ton satellite into orbit, following in the footsteps of Russia, the U.S., France, China, Japan and India.
