It's gotta suck when you spend 3 years developing something only to see it fail...again

HAHAHAHAHA, I just saw this on the news and had to hop on ATS!
This is just too epic. Are we to honestly now take any threat serious from N. Korea as to possible attacks, especially any that is in regards to the use of 'advanced' technology.
Also, this calls into question the relationship between China and N.Korea. For if they were truly buddy-buddy, you would think they would have some shared technology. There's no way a technologically advanced Chinese military would be involved with this, for China obviously holds the technology to launch a weather satellite.
This is truly self imposed slap in the face to N.Korea and any attempts that they may have in joining the technologically advanced world.
One word to sum up all of this, in regards to N.Korea and Technology...
Give me 3 weeks, and the internet in America and I can 100% make claim that I could design a more successful means of launching a satellite into space!

The time has already passed, and the technology behind simply being able to from A(Earth) to B(Space) is not even close to as difficult as some make it out to be.
I'm telling ya, if those 'scientists' over in N.Korea came over to America, even hopped on some 56k Dial-up internet, and spent 3 weeks doing research, they undoubtedly would have gathered enough information to make a successful launch.
It's just like when 'Sheldon' on the T.V. show 'Big Bang Theory' scoffs at the notion of him being a 'Rocket Scientist'.... this is NOT the 60's, 70's, or 80's...
Either way you cut it, this was a pathetic attempt...
I want to see them try and put every one of their leaders into space, that would be the greatest failure in the history of science!
