North Korea Launches Projectile, Possible Military Satellite


As this publication reported yesterday, North Korea is set to launch their third military satellite. The South Korean Joint Chiefs have announced in the last five minutes that the launch has reportedly occurred.

The Japanese government has ordered civilians in Okinawa to shelter in place as the projectile and its trajectory have been identified.

On May 31, North Korea carried out its first launch attempt of its space launch vehicle carrying the military satellite, however, it crashed in the West Sea following a second stage rocket failure, according to North Korean state-media KCNA. A second launch attempt was later made on August 23, but also crashed shortly after takeoff. The exact cause of the second failure remains unknown.
