South Korea launches first lunar orbiter


South Korea's first-ever lunar orbiter is launched from the US on a year-long mission to observe the Moon, with a payload including a new disruption-tolerant network for sending data from space. Danuri -- a portmanteau of the Korean words for "Moon" and "enjoy" -- is carried on a Falcon 9 rocket launched from Cape Canaveral in Florida by Elon Musk's aerospace company SpaceX. It aims to reach the Moon by mid-December.
