SKorean rocket likely exploded soon after liftoff


news.yahoo.com

SEOUL, South Korea – South Korea says a rocket that it sent into space Thursday carrying an observation satellite is believed to have exploded in flight.

Minister of Education, Science and Technology Ahn Byong-man says officials believe the two-stage Naro rocket operated normally for 137 seconds after liftoff from the country's space center. But then communications with the rocket were lost.

He says: "We believe that the Naro rocket exploded."

News just breaking so no solid info yet.
The question has to be was this an accident or an action taken by the north .
In this time of high tension between the north and south the paranoid north may well have seen this launch as a threat to their security .
It may well turn out the South Korea says a rocket just exploded but this may become a bigger news story in the coming hours.

I think it's an accident. It's hard to hit a rocket like that.

The north koreans didn't fire a couple of the gloriuos leader's
Hieneken bottles at it and knock it down in order to hit Japan?
I'm pretty sure Rumsfeld left him a couple of skids of green bottle rockets as a sales promo when rummie sold him his nuclear stuff.

Maybe after shaking a bottle he opened it upsidedown and and it slipped his grip and flew out the window?

oh well maybe it was just made in korea


hope no one got hurt.

what date was the rocket launched? and what date did the falcon nine missile take flight?

I believe the Rocket was already having problems prior to this launch, leading to the date being scheduled back. Its right on the tip of S.Korea (nowhere near the border to the North), but if the Launch Control thought its trajectory was off by even a few degree's then they'd have made a controlled detonation on safety grounds.

No spiral? They must have launched a UFO, then.

But it is likely they will accuse NK of having attacked the missile.
