What the world knows: the rocket failed, they suck again.
What North Korea is telling their citizens: the rocket was a success, it made it to Pluto and we now consider it a planet again.

FAILURE of their rockets is in deed GOOD NEWS to the World of Peace .... So much for using it as a "celebration" of the 100th birthday of a former dictator.

The North Koreans are learning what rocket science is all about. A lot of failures. What I don't understand is the mentality of the North Koreans to send money and resources they don't have.

This was a golden opportunity for the USA to test that new laser system designed to burn holes in rockets and destroy its structural integrity.... Hummm

Am I the only one who thought the Satellite looked like a cardboard box wrapped in foil?

I'm confused. They can build a nuclear weapon, but not a rocket? Does anyone else thinks that's a little backwards?
