President Yoon said, “President John F. Kennedy, who promoted the Moon project in 1962, said that going to the moon is a challenge not because it is easy, but because it is difficult. Because it is difficult, it becomes our challenge and becomes our dream.”
“Today we confirmed that dreams can become reality. Sweat, passion, and an unstoppable spirit of challenge made the dream a reality.”
“The Nuri also includes actual satellites developed by KAIST and the Korea Astronomical Research Institute, but the three satellites were born in the hands of our startups. So it has more meaning. I’m really proud of it,” he said, “congratulating Nuriho’s success once again, and everyone involved worked hard.”Reporter Lee Hye-won Donga.com [email protected]
