    Does their logo look familiar? I think they are just trying to get a rise out of US.

    They actually do, its called the Korean Committee of Space Technology.

    And, they actually managed to put a satellite into orbit. Which I feel is impressive considering they dont have very much money, and early 90s technology at best.

    Most of them have, however even tho it did tumble out of control after a few days, they did manage to get Kwangmyŏngsŏng-3 to orbit, via a Unha 3 rocket. Not so bad after 5 attempts.

    Supposedly most of the kinks of the Unha 3 are being worked out, shouldn't be to hard as its just a giant SCUD stacked on top of itself 3 times over. Its a very simple rocket, but so was the R7, and varients of it are in service today

    Sort of reminds me of us in the late 50s early 60s. Remember all those failed launch attempts we had.
