Talk about interception with a Patriot missile....
ETA: Confirmation that the rocket has in fact been launched by South Korea. No confirmation from the North yet. In direct opposition to Russia, who requested that North Korea "stand down".edit on 12-4-2012 by SonOfTheLawOfOne because: (no reason given)edit on 12-4-2012 by SonOfTheLawOfOne because: (no reason given)
(Reuters) - North Korea on Friday launched its ballistic rocket carrying a weather satellite, South Korea's YTN television reported, without citing sources.
The South's Yonhap news agency also reported the launch.
The launch has drawn international criticism due to concerns it could further the reclusive state's ability to deliver a nuclear warhead.
No further details or pictures were available to confirm the report.

Yup, I just got an alert on my iPhone AP/Drudge Report apps that North Korea has launched a rocket.
Now I have not been following current events lately so my question is whats the big deal? Is this just a test rocket and where is it going?
