New CIA Surveillance Images of North Korean Satellite Launch Released:
A little laugh to start your day.
North Korea launched an unknown object into orbit on Tuesday, according to the regime and confirmed by the U.S. military. They say it’s a weather satellite, but this GIF says otherwise. In all honesty, I believe that it’s a weather satellite as much as I believe Joan Rivers’ nose is real. It’s probably a test of a ballistic missile system, which appears to have mostly worked. Besides, isn’t the weather in North Korea whatever they say it is? And isn’t the rest of the world in a perpetual capitalist drought/hurricane?
Regardless of what the orbiting object is, friend or foe, the bad news is that it’s currently tumbling out of control, in an irregular and Kim-Jong-Unstable orbit. It could collide with another satellite, destroying it and creating a massive space debris cloud that could add to an already dangerous and garbage-laden near-Earth. Or worse, it could fall back to Earth, dropping upon an unsuspecting region of the Earth, you know, whatever weather-related cargo it’s carrying.
