North Korea rocket launch fails

BBC News, Friday 13 April 2012
North Korea’s keenly watched rocket launch has failed, Pyongyang has confirmed. South Korea said the rocket exploded into some 20 pieces and fell into the sea. North Korea has been surprisingly open about the failure of its satellite. A broadcaster appeared on state television within hours of the launch and admitted that the satellite had not reached orbit, and that North Korean scientists were trying to ascertain why. It marks a sharp change from previous launches, which Pyongyang had always declared successful, despite doubts from the international community. North Korea conducted a similar rocket launch in 2009. On that occasion US and South Korea analysts said the rocket failed to reach orbit – but North Korea said it was a success.

About thespeedofdark

David Winship has written an unauthorised autobiography and several critically disdained literary tomes. His work is frequently compared with Steinbeck, Orwell and Hemingway, but unfortunately Mike Steinbeck, Daisy Orwell and Howard Hemingway were all terrible writers. He has been totally overlooked for the most prestigious literary awards worldwide, which is a shame as most of the words are spelled correctly. In fact, his books contain material that ranks with the finest literary works in history: all the right letters are there, just not necessarily in the right order.

Dave’s blog (The Speed Of Dark Blog) is part of his crusade for truth and justice and universal entitlement to free real ale. It may well be that his whole purpose in life is to serve as a warning to others.
