I wonder, are they aware their rocket never reached either space or USA?
Looks like it's not too long till implosion.

A North Korean postal stamp, revealing how Kwangmyŏngsŏng-2 satellite "looked".

The distant object at right side should be the upper stage, shouldn't it?

And, btw, we have another win for non-proliferation here:

Remember that the official "truth" in North Korea is, that the first satellite is in orbit, sending hymns on the tyrants of NK, and not on the bottom of the ocean.

I wonder if Kim Jong-Il knows the real truth (satellite vaporised) or that his scientist and generals have told him that it was a succes.

It'll have some espionage mission, no? if so i like how it actually looks like a 70's hand held camera - with solar panels... looks Kinda like if you asked a 4 year old to design a spy satellite with a camera and they took the camera part too literally.
