Posted: Dec 12, 2012


North Korea successfully launched a long-range rocket yesterday morning, taking South Korea, the United States and Japan completely by surprise.

The North’s official Korean Central News Agency reported that “the launch of the second version of satellite Kwangmyongsong-3 was successful through the carrier rocket Unha-3 at the Space Center in Cholsan County, North Pyongan Province.”
