I say, we pickout a vacant, remote island and tell Nkorea if they can hit it, we will give them respect.
At the moment, it seems they light the fuse, put their fingers in their ears and hope for the best!
Didn't explode during take off, and it didn't explode mid-flight.
It did achieve all stages successfully and it was able to launch the satellite into orbit.
It's not only a success, it is a surprising success after the reported troubles they were having. Just a couple of days ago they were saying they
needed to replace the third rocket stage due to some minor problems.
However, this story is worth keeping track of...
All western media sources were saying they were having problems with the third stage and that they needed to replace it. They even showed satellite
photos of it being carried to the launch pad.
A couple of days later the rocket is launched without any warning and its a complete success.
Either the western media just got exposed manipulating information and getting it wrong.
Or the North Koreans just pulled the world leg and got away with it...
