US to conduct THAAD test next week

The US will conduct as soon as next weekend another test of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system meant to counter threats from North Korea.

The launch from Alaska's Kodiak Island is scheduled to occur at the Pacific Spaceport Complex. The US and South Korea agreed last July to deploy a THAAD system in North Gyeongsang province. 2 of 6 launch pads have already arrived there but the new South Korean government has decided to halt installation while it studies their impact on the environment.
