North Korea is aiming to send an unmanned mission to plant a flag on the moon within the next 10 years

“Even though the US and its allies try to block our space development, our aerospace scientists will conquer space and definitely plant the flag of the DPRK on the moon,” Hyon Kwang Il, director of the scientific research department of North Korea's National Aerospace Development Administration told AP.

“We are planning to develop the Earth observation satellites and to solve communications problems by developing geostationary satellites. All of this work will be the basis for the flight to the moon,” hopefully “within 10 years’ time,” Hyon said.

In addition, Korea also expects “to do manned spaceflight and scientific experiments in space, make a flight to the moon and moon exploration and also exploration to other planets.”

Apparently North Korea has their sights set on exploring space. While I highly doubt that'll happen, it would be quite a shock to the world were it to be reality.

Well they did launch a satellite into orbit. The moon is but a mere 238,900 miles more.

They only have to get it right once.😊

Good. I hope they succeed. We need to get out there and adventure some more.

I hope they don't put Kims face on the flag should they succeed, that would scare any chance of Alien intervention completely.

And we shall have...peace.

More power to 'em. Though I would think feeding your citizens would come before that...

Priorities.

Meh, Coruscant is too crowded, I prefer Corellia.

Someone would normally say stop at this point I reckon, if they were playing a video game or whatever...

I really hope they do it and build a space station there. It may kick our governments up the arse to get us out there.
Another space race


Remember that Bond movie Moonraker? it will be exactly like that lil Kim in space.

I like to think that if they work towards something like that their country will get better as a side effect. So I'm all for it! Plus, anyone dedicating time for space exploration is ok with me.

Not in L'il Kim's world or any North Korean's Despot world, come to think of it.

Or maybe L'il Kim truly believes the Moon is made out of cheese and he is sending up his best processors to bring back food for all their citizens?

Settle down there Kimmy.

It's not really made out of cheese!

Yes, even a maniacal Despot.

He must be a top guy if he is willing to spend billions at the expense of starving citizens.

Edit- Where do they get their billions?

Kim wont live forever. Seems like everyone in NK already hates him secretly, just a matter of time. In any case that's for another thread. It creates jobs for all those starving citizens, Who will earn food/money and as a result the economy will grow stronger, People will eventually start living better lives (still likely under oppression but..). Now known as a space fairing nation, The international community will put more pressure on getting NK up to date with the rest of the world instead of just brushing it into a corner like a tantrum child.

That's just what i think though. I could be completely wrong and NK will find a way to screw it up.

What can't KJU do? He discovered cold fusion a few years ago and made a fusion bomb this year... so yeah, 10 years?... it could happen!

Totally happen!

Computer! End sarcasm!

I don't think they could even manage to plant a flag on the grave of Rev. Sun Myong Moon.
