Common Korean Spaceship Words

우주 (Uju)

English Translation: space / universe

One of the most important Korean spaceship words that we need to learn is space. The space/universe is a lot to take for a human brain. Its complexity makes it incomprehensible for use. Did you know that the space is completely silent? Because there is no atmosphere in space, sound has no medium or path to travel in order to be heard. No wonder why astronauts use the adjective incomprehensible for the space/universe.

In the hit Korean film “Space Sweepers,” you’ll be discovering a lot about space, so if you love Korean films and space at the same time, why not grab a bucket of popcorn and binge-watch it on Netflix.

우주비행사 (Ujubihaengsa)

English Translation: astronaut

Do you know what it is like to become an astronaut? Well, for starters, you have to know that being an astronaut requires a strong commitment. You’re not just investing your time, skills, money, and effort. It’s your life we are talking about. Astronaut candidates will go through a two-year basic training program in which they will study survival skills, language, technical capabilities, and other talents required of astronauts. A whole NASA space suit costs $12 million, which is a lot of money to sacrifice.

In this present time, when we talk about Korean astronauts, there’s this one person that has been popular on social media. His name is Jonny Kim, the first Korean-American astronaut. Kim is also an American US Navy lieutenant and a physician. You can also hear the name of Yi So-yeon, who also made history as the first Korean astronaut to fly in space.

로켓 (Roket)

English Translation: rocket

Last October 21, 2021, the South Korean rocket “Nuri” blasted off. This is a big step for South Korea because “Nuri” is their first homegrown rocket. Unfortunately, it has failed to complete its mission. For some reason, it was unable to enter the proper orbit.

행성 (Haengseong)

English Translation: planet

There are many planets in the Solar system, so the next Korean spaceship word that we will learn is “planet.” Let’s start with some fun facts about our own planet. Each day on Earth, you only get one chance to view the sunrise or set. In space, it’s more difficult to overlook; the sun rises and sets every 45 minutes or so. Also, did you know that our solar system’s hottest planet has a temperature of 450 degrees Celsius? And it’s Venus, not Mercury.

망원경 (Telescope)

English Translation: mangwongyeong

Our Korean spaceship words will not be complete without learning how to say the word telescope, which is a really must-have item for aspiring astronomers and astronauts. It makes the galaxy seems so close and reachable for people here on Earth.
