North Korea appears to ape Nasa with space agency logo
Design looks remarkably similar to that of US space agency, right down to the blue globe, lettering and swooshed ring
The choice of a globe as the emblem for North Korea's space agency expresses the country's ideal of peaceful exploration, explains the Korean Central News Agency. The blue rings, it adds, represent satellites, and the constellation of stars shows the desire to "glorify Kim Il-sung's and Kim Jong-il's Korea as a space power".
However, the state news agency neglects to mention one glaring thing: the new logo looks a lot like that of Nasa, the space agency of Pyongyang foe's the US, right down to the blue globe, lettering and swooshed ring.
The agency said the logo was released to mark the first anniversary of North Korea's National Aerospace Development Administration, a name shortened on the emblem to Nada, the Spanish word for "nothing", arguably also an unfortunate coincidence given this seems to be precisely what the country's only successfully launched satellite is transmitting to Earth, leading overseas scientists to assume it has malfunctioned.
North Korea's space programme is a major source of pride to a hermetic and repressive state, which was condemned this year by a UN report as an abuser of human rights unparalleled in the modern world, with strong echoes of the Nazis.
The orbiting satellite was launched into December 2012, on a three-stage Unha rocket. Unha is Korean for "galaxy". It was the country's fifth attempt to put a satellite in orbit, with the previous mission, in April 2012, failing very publicly when the rocket exploded shortly after lift-off. North Korean scientists said the satellite would study crops and weather patterns.

Space program = nukes into orbit
Is the North Korean Space Agency teaching muslims what great contributions they have given to science?
Nothing. Seems appropriate for their space budget!
And ours too!
Now that is good.
OK, who’s going to show L’il Kim a Spanish/Korean dictionary?
I don’t think they’ve got a lot of originality in North Korea!
The “North Korean Space Agency”?
Is this from the Onion?
The North Korean people are EATING GRASS.
