Spy War in Space Hots Up, South Korea Launches Its 1st Military Spy Satellite

South Korea’s first indigenous military spy satellite was successfully launched from a US military base in California.

Launch of this spy satellite coincides with growing North Korean threats, the South Korean Defence Ministry said on Saturday.

On November 21 North Korea claimed success in its own spy satellite launch.

The launch of the South Korea spy satellite was made by a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from Vandenberg Space Force Base on Friday

The spy satellite was placed in orbit approximately four minutes after launch at 10.19 am, and it started communicating with a ground station at 11.37 am.

South Korea plans to send four more synthetic aperture radar (SAR) satellites or spy satellites into space by 2025 for better watch on North Korea.
