North Korea claims that its impending satellite launch, scheduled for this week, is merely a mission to study the country’s “distribution of forests” and weather patterns. But after analyzing the satellite’s potential flight paths, a network of amateur and professional spaceflight specialists have concluded that Pyongyang’s claim is all but impossible. In order for the North Koreans to get a weather or observation satellite into the proper orbit, these experts say, Pyongyang would have to risk the early stages of its rockets dropping on its neighbors’ and allies’ heads.

Seems we may have a dud then? Or have those $200 computers crunched the wrong numbers? The world awaits!?

Just hope it does not decide to come down anywhere near land. Their will be trouble.

Can't they just pull that info up on google earth to see the forest distribution?

No! Surely not

But that would show the rest of the country there is an "outside" world! Remember in the NK publics eye's, we live just like them..........Not.

Yeah, but their government was not going to share the findings with the public any way. So, the government could still pull the info up and just not tell anyone where they got it from.

Yeah, just like the last time.........apparantly it was a great success! Even brought tears to the dear leaders eyes.........what total rubbish. Do they even know they are looked upon as a joke?

I don't even think they know we could monitor their farts if we wanted to?
edit on 10-4-2012 by CaptainBeno because: farts!

Im sure the CIA has a file on them........
The missile is obviously an intercontinental rocket disguised poorly as a science project......
The NK idiots they are playing with fire.......what do they expect to do when somebody takes a pot shot at their ballistic missile?
The idea they can punish anyone but their own starved to death millions is ludicrous....

Youd think somebody would be kind enough to email them and set them straight!
