North Korean Test
A whole lot of people got their knickers in a bunch about the North Korean missile test.
If you can believe Kim Jong-il [get real, you believe a guy who goes to the same barber as Beaker?] everything went wonderfully and their satellite is in orbit broadcasting sounds of joy to the world.
If you believe the US military [boy, these multiple choice tests are getting tricky] the second and third stages didn’t fire and they ended up in the central Pacific.
I would classify it as limited success for North Korea [hey, it didn’t blow up on the launch pad, like the last one], but they still can’t reliably launch multi-stage rockets. Japan is right to be upset, given North Korea’s success rate, because the North Korean missile program could drop a test missile into Japan as easily as flying over it, and with Japan’s population density, thousands of casualties is a definite possibility.
