Doesn’t look very well fed, does he? Its probably not a particularly good idea to have rocket scientists who are spending most of their time worrying about where their next meal is coming from.....

He’s probably a dead man and 3 generations of his family could be on their way to the death camps.

I’ll make the following prediction without fear of challenge:

The UN will condemn the launch and demand NK stop building rockets.

NK will tell the UN to butt out and light off another nuke test.

The US will send $250 million in food, hoping to change the attitude of the NK.

Protesters from conservative, right-wing and anti-North Korean civic groups burn
an effigy of North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un bound on a mock North Korean
missile during a protest against North Korea's rocket launch near the U.S. embassy
in Seoul April 13, 2012. North Korea said its much hyped long-range rocket launch
failed on Friday, in a very rare and embarrassing public admission of failure by the
hermit state and ...

LOL. I think they are mocking you there Kim Jong.

No problem! Like the USA, N.Korea has a great propaganda machine and they will UNCOVER that it was a white Westerner who sabotaged the missile.

More than likely our MSM will even help them craft such a story because it does not help Mubumbo Odumbo to have large central planning type governments fail.

This failure does not support our MSM’s narrative that socialists/communist/Marxist are vastly superior to Capitalists and freedom loving people.

You forgot your conclusion:

The $250 million in food will not go to the public but will be placed in Government coffers and the public will still praise DEAR LEADER.

OK, so I’m weak on the physics of ballistics and missile guidance.

So can someone answer me this...

Isn’t a rocket launch and guidance based on science on mathematics? If so, shouldn’t the launch be nothing more than what the engineers have proved and re-proved time and time again in working out all the various scenarios? How can these engineers have a launch that fails (short of the obvious variables like mechanical breakdown, etc.).

I don’t understand why the NoKos can’t do this successfully, unless their engineering is hopelessly flawed, in which case they shouldn’t be staging these pie-in-our-own-face circuses.

consider that we with all our expertise and that of the German rocket scientists, we still had years of failures
in our programs. its math/science/engineering/program management, and being able to learn from failure.

they also need for there to be freedom to bring bad news
to the attention of management.

Some things are just difficult. You can't simulate everything (such as the effects of vibration, thermal shock loads, timing issues on separation, etc.). The US had a couple of dozen failures in our early rocket program. Remember Vanguard?

  1. Vanguard TV3 - December 6, 1957 - Failed to orbit 1.36 kg (3 lb) satellite
  2. Vanguard TV3 Backup - February 5, 1958 - Failed to orbit 1.36 kg (3 lb) satellite
  3. Vanguard 1 - March 17, 1958 - Orbited 1.47 kg (3.25 lb) satellite
  4. Vanguard TV5 - April 28, 1958 - Failed to orbit 9.98 kg (22 lb) satellite
  5. Vanguard SLV 1 - May 27, 1958 - Failed to orbit 9.98 kg (22 lb) satellite
  6. Vanguard SLV 2 - June 26, 1958 - Failed to orbit 9.98 kg (22 lb) satellite
  7. Vanguard SLV 3 - September 26, 1958 - Failed to orbit 9.98 kg (22 lb) satellite
  8. Vanguard 2 - February 17, 1959 - Orbited 10.8 kg (23.7 lb) satellite
  9. Vanguard SLV 5 - April 13, 1959 - Failed to orbit 10.3 kg (22 lb 11 oz) satellite
  10. Vanguard SLV 6 - June 22, 1959 - Failed to orbit 10.3 kg (22 lb 11 oz) satellite
  11. Vanguard 3 - September 18, 1959 - Orbited 22.7 kg (50 lb) satellite

The joke was that Vanguard was like a government worker: 'You can't fire it and you can't make it work.'

———The US will send $250 million in food, hoping to change the attitude of the NK.————

Interesting comment upon which I can shed some real light.

I spoke last week with a man with an organization called Samaritan’s Purse. They have a program involving Shoe Boxes of stuff and I think food. This is the organization of Franklin Grahm and operates from their Charlotte facility

He told me they have a shipment for North Korea ready to go but it was put on hold by the US government because of the rocket. Now that the rocket is failed, one wonders if the rescinded permit will be reinstated?
