    Before laughing too hard, review the success of the early Redstone project in the US. It didn’t really take very long after those early failures to be putting men on the moon.

    So what is the life expectancy of the chief engineer on the NK missile project?

    It’s quite a step down from one of their launches earlier in the aughts, though. That one wasn’t nearly so funny.

    So either their engineers and missile manufacturers are getting worse, their management is getting sloppy with schedule pressure, or (if you’re really paranoid) they’re actually trying to lull us into thinking that they don’t actually have anything that could hit California.

    So what’s the deal? Looks like the stages separated at the wrong time, or something?

  • The NORKs make Mugabe look good.

    In the end, the NoKo missile turned out to be just another Chinese rocket set off to celebrate an occasion.
