    It is third time lucky for South Korea where a rocket has been successfully launched after two previous failures. In addition, the launch was also called off at the last minute twice last year, due to technical problems.

    Named Naro, the rocket is carrying a satellite to collect climate data - the first South Korean satellite to be sent into space from inside the country.
