(Asia In Focus via NewsEdge) South Korea plans to put its first satellite for meteorological observation into orbit in 2008.
The Ministry of Science and Technology said it plans to put a 2.5-ton satellite dedicated to maritime and weather observations into orbit 36,000 kilometers above the equator in December 2008.
The satellite, to be equipped with a high-powered meteorological optical camera, is expected to aid weather authorities, as the country's weather forecasts now depend heavily on US and Japanese satellites.
