South Korean Space Program

In 2004 Russia's President Putin and South Korea's President Roh Moo-hyun signed a space technology co-operative agreement to train and fly a South Korean astronaut aboard a Soyuz TMA spacecraft. The first two astronauts may be selected in 2005. The South Korean astronaut might fly on a crew swap mission to the International Space Station in  2007.

Russia's Khrunichev firm is building a launch pad for the South Korean Space Programme.
