    South Korea to join Asian space race

    AFP: South Korea to join Asian space race

    South Korea on Tuesday announced an ambitious plan to join Asia's space race by launching a lunar orbiter by 2020 and sending a probe to the moon five years after that.
    [...]
    "South Korea will send a probe into lunar orbit by 2020 and another to the surface of the moon by 2025 under the road map," a ministry spokesman said.
    [...]
    South Korea also plans to launch a large satellite weighing about 100 kilograms (220 pounds) every three or four years, and at least two smaller satellites every year.
    Who's next?

    Still, I do wish them luck.

    Rats, that's what I was going to say! Well, actually something more like
    "Oooh! Ooooh! Pick me!"
    It will be good to have South Korea working on space technology, as they are already very technological and have more robots and homes connected to the Internet than any other country.
    The greatest journey of all time, for all to see
    Every mission makes our dreams reality
    And our destiny begins with you and me
    Through all space and time, the achievement of mankind
    As we sail the sea of discovery, on heroes’ wings we fly!

    More per capita, or more overall?

    National Geographic says they have more robots overall, and the New York Times said that 90% of their houses are connected to the Internet and that this was more than any other nation.
