Asia N & S.Korea Exchange Fire + N.K Steals NASA Logo

North Korea Steals NASA Logo.
But names Space Agency NADA (which means 'nothing' in Spanish)


By Daily Mail UK, 2 April 2014


With its blue globe, swooshed rings and a constellation of stars remarkably like NASA's, North Korea has proudly unveiled a new logo for its space agency to 'glorify' its stature as a global power.
But almost as soon as it was unveiled, the emblem was already threatening to bring dictator Kim Jong Un crashing back down to Earth.

Amid the fanfare, it has been quick to attract mocking criticism because its acronym NADA unfortunately translates as 'nothing' in Spanish.
That, cynics have pointed out, pretty much sums up the hermit nation's achievements in the space race to date.









North Korea has unveiled a new logo for its space agency that looks remarkably like
NASA's except for the unfortunate acronym NADA which means 'nothing' in Spanish




Back down to Earth: The emblem was designed to 'glorify' North Korea's stature as a
global power, but has left dictator Kim Jong Un open to humiliating criticism

North Korea has managed to launch just one satellite into space after several botched attempts and even that is thought to have malfunctioned while in orbit.
And while the logo has also been likened to NASA's iconic symbol - albeit a cartoon version - North Korea made no reference to its arch rivals when announcing the design.

Critics soon took to Twitter to mock the logo:

Quote:
Felicity Morse said: 'Love that North Korea has not only ripped off Nasa's logo, but also called it Nada'.

Michael Gaffney tweeted: 'The irony that they've called it 'NADA'. Because that's exactly what the result will be.'
Quote:
Jonathan Cheng added: 'N. Korea's rebranded space agency has big ambitions, peaceful intentions and one really awful acronym: NADA'










North Korea launched a satellite into on the Unha-3 rocket (above) from Cholsan county,
North Pyongan province, in December 2012 after several failed attempts, but it thought the satellite has malfunctioned

The logo was released to mark the first anniversary of North Korea's National Aerospace Development Administration

It said the stars, which form the Great Bear constellation, were designed to 'glorify Kim Il Sung's and Kim Jong Il's (former rulers) Korea as a space power'.
It added: 'The DPRK has pushed ahead with space development projects to turn the country into a space power, fully exercising its right to peaceful development of the space on a legal basis'

It denied it was pursuing the 'weaponisation of outer space'.
In December 2012, Pyongyang finally launched a satellite - described as a 'dishwasher wrapped in tinfoil - after several botched attempts.

After 14 years of trying, hundreds of millions of pounds and repeated failures, the government claimed the mission was a huge success, but many believe it ended up simply tumbling out of control.

North Korea insists its space program is peaceful, but its long-range rocket program has generated international fears that it is getting closer to developing nuclear missiles capable of striking the U.S.

Previous News Report on North/South Korea:

BBC, 31 March 2014, Last updated 1 April

North and South Korea Exchange Fire across Western Sea Border



The western sea border is a flashpoint - in this 2010 incident North Korean fire killed four South Koreans



North and South Korea have exchanged fire into the sea across the disputed western sea border, South Korea says.
North Korea announced early on Monday that it would hold live-fire drills in seven parts of the border area.
South Korea says it returned fire after North Korean shells landed in its territorial waters.
The area has been a flashpoint between the two Koreas. The UN drew the western border after the Korean War, but North Korea has never recognised it.

Analysis


Charles Scanlon BBC News

By unleashing its artillery batteries on the disputed maritime border, North Korea is directly challenging the South Korean military and testing its resolve.
South Korea's west coast islands are much closer to the North than to the South Korean mainland and are vulnerable to attack.

It is a war of nerves that has led to bloodshed in the past - and gives the North scope to flex its military muscle without igniting large scale conflict.

South Korean has been found wanting in its response in previous contests - but this time it fired hundreds of shells into North Korean waters. It also scrambled fighter bombers with the unspoken warning that they could strike North Korean artillery units should any shells land on an island.

The North's action is seen as a response to the current annual war drills taking place in the South - including the largest beach landings by American and South Korean marines for many years.
The North had already responded by firing salvoes of rockets - and two medium range ballistic missiles - off its east coast.
It is currently pushing for talks with the US and its allies and habitually uses displays of force to convince its adversaries that any attempt at confrontation will backfire.

In late 2010, four South Koreans were killed on a border island by North Korean artillery fire. Border fire was also briefly exchanged in August 2011.

'Responded with Fire'

The live-fire exercises were announced by North Korea in a faxed message from its military to the South's navy.
South Korea warned of immediate retaliation if any shells crossed the border.

"Some of [North Korea's] shells landed south of the border during the drill. So our military fired back north of the border in line with ordinary protocol," a defence ministry statement said.
South Korea said the two sides exchanged hundreds of shells.
"The North fired some 500 shots... and some 100 of them landed in waters south of the border," said Defence Ministry spokesman Kim Min-seok.
The South fired more than 300 rounds in return, he said.

Residents of a border island, Baengnyeong, were evacuated into shelters during the three-hour incident.



In November 2010, North Korea fired shells at the border island of Yeonpyeong,
killing two marines and two civilians.


It said it was responding to South Korean military exercises in the area.
Earlier that year, a South Korean warship sank near Baengnyeong island with the loss of 46 lives.
Seoul says Pyongyang torpedoed the vessel but North Korea denies any role in the incident.

'New Form' Test

China - North Korea's biggest trading partner - called for calm and restraint after the exchange of fire.

It came days after North Korea test-fired two medium-range Nodong missiles over the sea, its first such launch since 2009.




On Monday a joint S Korea-US military drill also took place

Late last week, the UN Security Council condemned the launch and said it was considering an "appropriate response".

That launch followed a series of short-range missile tests, seen as a response to the current US-South Korea annual military exercises.

Over the weekend, North Korea also threatened to conduct a "new form" of nuclear test.

It has conducted three nuclear tests to date, the most recent in February 2013.
South Korea's Unification Ministry said on Monday that there was no sign a North Korean nuclear test was imminent.

I read somewhere ages ago that North Korea picks out the best boys that maths seems to come easy to them to learn from ages around ten and speeds up there math and computer programming with them to find the best to send to the USA to further study then sent back home all for the next moderen warefare, done by hacking each others nuc buttons, just making this short, and passwords.

Its sounds like another buy up another piece of America from another country, there all into get the US, but it doesn't seem to ring any bells for them????

Very smart to call it "nothing" as the real truth may as well be "FUUSA" thats not giving anything away, Its pretty easy to make out cause an aussie made it up
