4.9.09 Sattelite Image released ( Guardian):
The WorldView-1 satellite is operated by the US imaging company Digital Globe, which snapped the North Korean rocket on its launchpad last week using another satellite called Quickbird. Allison Puccioni, a senior image analyst for IHS Jane's, said it was the first time a satellite had captured a rocket mid-launch.
This is a photo of South Koreans watching news of rocket launch from a railway station ( Guardian article Sunday AM). ( I would prefer to see more photos and images and even video, which it seem like would be accessible ? Their leader does love filming things ? ) Sunday AM Guardian article here has more details.
Articles as of 11:30PM:::
Times Online from the UK...
There is a brief article on the BBC.....
Yet This Article from China was posted an hour ago- and it says the Rocket has not been launched, and is Imminent....
Here is More in which is says that the reports are coming from Japan and North Korea.....
From China's Xinhua's report they are now saying it was indeed launched .....carrying satellite and that the boosters fell into the Pacific.
BUT already earlier today Japan had claimed that a rocket was launched, so we really do need Better Reporting on this situation, accuracy, and photos....
This is supposedly a "recent" photo of Dear Leader ( I think it is questionable- anyone else think it looks photoshopped ?) Anyone else wondering if he is even alive and functioning ? and WHO is really in Charge there ?
