North Korea suggests satellite launch
North Korea's state-run media has argued that every country has the right to develop its space program. Sources say it could be an indication that the country is preparing for a long-range ballistic missile launch.
The newspaper of the ruling Workers' Party, Rodong Sinmun, issued a commentary on Monday saying that violating the right to peaceful development and use of space runs counter to international law.
Back in February, the media reported that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un had set launching a stationary satellite as an immediate goal of the country's space development.
North Korea fired what it called a satellite in February 2016. It is believed to have been a long-range ballistic missile.
This month, the Russian government-backed newspaper, Russiyskaya Gazeta, quoted a military expert who visited Pyongyang last month as saying that North Korea plans to launch 2 satellites.
The North reportedly said one is an earth observation satellite weighing over 100 kilograms and the other is a geostationary satellite weighing more than one ton.
And the mass of an EMP-inducing nuke is about...
Knock it down.
Looks like all the reports about them testing a missile yesterday was just media hype.
N. Korea would probably want to do a SLBM test down the road.
let’s roll ping
Anything they launch that passes over US airspace should be quietly eliminated, no threats, no notice, with plausible deniability. “Sorry, NK, your orbital nuke appears to have self-destructed.”
They already have a couple satellites up and orbiting the earth. “Bright Stars” are they names. The NORKS put one directly over Levi Stadium 1 hour after Super Bowl 50. You can search on Live Track North Korean Satellite and look for KMS 3-2 hits
