For the first rocket launch, numerous overseas reporters were invited. The failure was a humiliation.
The project manager of the 1st failed rocket launch was never seen again. Maybe dead or in prison camp.
If the second rocket also fails. Wonder how will North Korea deal with that.

The first launch was a success. It hit its intended target which was the south china sea.

Something ain't quite logical here.

Quite a few nations can fire rockets up into space for commerical payload, for research or space exploration.

Atomic/nuclear bombs are in the arsenal of a few nations too.

But now, the Big Bro is condemning this poor nation like a big bully.

Please dun get me wrong. I am no supporter of the Kim Dynasty. Just speak out of pure logic la.

North Korea got some Iranian technical advisers to help.
It is out of control and may collide with other orbiting vehicles above Earth.

North Korean satellite 'tumbling out of control' as fears grow it could crash land back to Earth | Mail Online
There are hundreds of objects/satellites circling our globe, for telecoms, for spying, for nav, GPS etc. After years, they come crashing down and burnt up in the process. So, this one could come down in a matter of days, months or years. Not much different from all the others.

"May collide with other orbiting vehicles" - this one sent me laughing all the way. You should know how tiny and minute this one is compared with the enormous 3D space around the globe. Even in the "SMALL" narrow equatorial geostationary orbit, the space is still huge to accommodate as many satellite as we wish, with their extended solar panels and antennae.
