Default Nuri--a new scale subject!

Hello All,

South Korea has joined the space club, orbiting its own satellites with its own rocket (see: https://www.youtube.com/results?sea...atellite+launch ), which gives us another scale subject, too! Also:

Until they (KARI, see: https://www.kari.re.kr/kor.do ) really get going with commercial (and contracted, for other countries and companies in them) launches, keeping track of their launches will be easy. They've run a "box-ticking" space program--of sounding rocket and orbital launches--thus far; there's nothing wrong with that (although it reduces the amount of experience-by-doing), but their launch rate has been very low so far. (They have flown fewer than ten sounding rockets [if memory serves], three Naro-1 orbital vehicles [the mostly-Russian vehicle, with a South Korean solid propellant second stage], of which the last one achieved orbit, one suborbital test of their all-indigenous Nuri SLV, its first [failed, although it came fairly close to succeeding] orbital test flight last year, and now yesterday's successful launch--into a Sun-synchronous orbit--of a large flight performance instrumented satellite and four operational CubeSats; upgraded versions of the Nuri vehicle are also in development: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuri_(rocket) - Argh...it's one of those Wikipedia articles that will only open after entering its name, "Nuri (rocket)" [without quotation marks] on the main page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page .)

I hope this information will he helpful.

I found an image . . .

To me, it's reminiscient of the ATLAS-AGENA in overall shape.

I agree--the Nuri particularly resembles the last USAF Atlas-Agena vehicles (the very last one flew in 1978), which had very long, 5' diameter payload fairings; their Agenas, with those long payload fairings, looked like the Nuri's second and third stages.

Also, Finescale Models offered a 1:144 scale KSLV-1 (Naro-1) plastic model kit (see: https://www.scalemodelnews.com/2013...orea-south.html ). It was/is a PMC conversion candidate. If they also produce a Nuri model kit, it could also be a PMC model.

Always remember the "C" in "PMC" is for "CRASHER".
I love PMCs. They give me a greater than 50% chance of seeing a POWR-PRANG.

Yes, there is such a thing as NORMAL
, if you have to ask what is "NORMAL" , you probably aren't !

Failure may not be an OPTION, but it is ALWAYS a POSSIBILITY.

The luck of the Unicorn Folk must ride with me, then (the comment directly below *this* https://www.furaffinity.net/view/18588029/ portrait a friend of mine did for/of me mentions an interesting happening), because I've never had a PMC crash. (I made one out of a 1/72 scale Saab Viggen, and a scale-like one using the Apollo CM from a Revell 1/96 scale Saturn V.) Also:

Although they weren't/aren't "officially" PMCs, the all-plastic Estes Firing Line RTF--and Cox RTF--model rockets always flew true for me, even though--like most PMC models--they were/are rather heavy for their size. I even had a ^very^ short (just ~8' peak altitude), but safe and complete (it looked like the "typical flight profile" drawing--but 'flown to scale'--that is included in model rocket catalogs), flight from a Cox Honest John, when I accidentally loaded it with a 1/2A6-2 motor, instead of an A8-3.
