Korea has the potential to become an important partner in efforts aimed at advancing exploration and technology for the peaceful use of space, the head of the U.S. aerospace administration said yesterday.

National Aeronautic and Space Administration (NASA) chief Charles Bolden, Jr. said at the International Astronautical Congress in Daejeon, located 164 kilometers (102 miles) south of Seoul, that the country has made noticeable strides with its robust space program by building satellites and launching a rocket into orbit.

He said that future cooperative tie-ups could take place in such areas as lunar exploration, satellites and the field of aeronautics.

The remarks come after President Lee Myung-bak said on Monday that Seoul is seeking to forge cooperative relations with top space exploration leaders like the United States and is considering a move to take part in a U.S.-led lunar exploration project.
