Korea joins int’l satellite grouping

Korea’s national aerospace research institute has become the newest member of an international group working to provide information, such as satellite images, to countries affected by natural or man-made disasters, the government said yesterday.

The Korea Aerospace Research Institute (KARI) became a full member of the International Charter: Space and Major Disasters, which now has 14 member institutes from 13 countries, including France’s government-run space agency, CNES, and the Canadian Space Agency.

The International Charter was launched in 2000 under the leadership of CNES and the European Space Agency to help countries hit by natural or man-made disasters, such as earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.
