A design flaw was mentioned in the failure of the Korean rocket. Done Blame it on the first p South Korea's homemade missile, the KSLV-2, was reported in October due to a malfunctioning tanks anchor on the upper deck of the three-stage rocket, according to Space News. Kerosene, which contains kerosene and liquid oxygen, left its fake payload in an unstable orbit when the upper stage engine was shut down 46 seconds ago. A failure study by the Korea Aerospace Research Institute found that improperly designed structures allow high-level helium tanks to sag during flight, depriving a Rocket engine of liquid oxygen leakage.

Space enhancement. Anchors... Helium tanks with defective anchors were placed inside a high-stage oxidation tank, which was filled with liquid oxygen needed to ignite the rocket. While the helium tanks were loosened, the pipelines in the oxidation tank malfunctioned, causing liquid oxygen to leak, leading to the premature termination of the ignition. This problem will be corrected by strengthening the helium tank anchors on the KSLV-2. A second test flight of the KSLV is scheduled for later this year. (Posted by Ken the Bin)
