North Korea's Satellite Ambitions....
....ended up in the Yellow Sea. Hopefully the rocket launch in North Korea hasn't escaped people's attention over the last week, not least because of the diplomatic tensions it has caused and the potential for using this launch as a test for the development of ballistic missiles. Anyway, the "reason" for the launch was the 100th anniversary of the birth of Kim Il-Sung and to place an EO satellite in to orbit. Jonathan Amos has a nice piece highlighting the difficulties in rocket launch and satellite development.
