Korea, U.S. agree to 10-year space research agreement

Korea and the United States have reached an agreement to jointly research space exploration. The two countries reached consensus on Sunday and are slated to officially sign the agreement soon, the Korean Ministry of Science, ICT and Future Planning said on Tuesday.

Korea has become the 11th country to seal a government-to-government partnership with the United States in space research, following countries including Russia, Canada and France. The decade-long agreement will allow the two countries to share technological expertise on building ships that can both orbit around and land on the moon, which Korea aims to complete by 2020.
