Submission + - North Korea Is The Newest Power In Space (forbes.com)

utherdoul writes: North Korea has been trying since 1998 to put a satellite into orbit: On December 12th, they finally succeeded. Officials described the launch as a “peaceful project,” and said the rocket carried a weather satellite; other countries have condemned the mission as a step towards launching ballistic missiles at targets across the globe. From the article:

The Unha-3 rocket blasted off at around 10 AM local time from a space center in the village of Tongchang-ri on the west coast of the Korean Peninsula, flew over the East China Sea, the Japanese prefecture of Okinawa, and then past the Philippines. The North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) confirms that the rocket’s payload achieved earth orbit.
