Of course the North will never hear about it or it will be reported as a stunning failure. Eat your heart out Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.

P.S Shame the dummy payload did not make orbit however the launch sequence etc went to plan .
Test flights are like this so back to the drawing board folks and have it worked out for the next launch which we are looking forward to .
On and upwards.
