North Korea rocket appears to have broken up - CNN.com
Was it sabotage or poor standard of rockets received from China
I think a few scientist would have lost their heads to fail the great successor.
What a shame. International community can breathe easy for a while.
Haha, much better than India, at least they know where it landed.
Made in china. Junk exporter to the world
But of course China did make the sensors right, with good quality, just like many "good" quality made in China products
Video: Indian rocket explodes after take-off - Telegraph
US will be relieved. South Korea, Japan are already under range of so many Nkorean missiles and they can't do anything about it, so this test really doesn't make a difference. what makes a difference is if Korea can weaponize a nuke and deploy on these missiles. Can they do that?
Of course, we launched the rockets and accepted the failed launch, because we had to actually test it, since we actually developed them, instead of stealing from others:taunt1:. I am Sure China "Researches" and Find out lots of things and comes right even on the very first try
They have plutonium program which is advanced thanks to help from
You know who.
There are no boundaries in love.
I can post space shuttle explosions. What's the point? Space science is like that.
Long March rockets have had many failures too.
Oh sorry I forgot you just have to troll to get 50 cents.
North Korea bought made in china but by mistake they got Fake made in china .. from China ....:taunt1:
I think the significance of today's failure is the drama and posturing which preceded it.
who make junk, open you eye, If made in China is junk, what is made in India?
All Russian, North Korean, Chinese, and Indian missiles derive from the Soviet Union. While Russian and Chinese missiles enjoy great success, Indian fails epically.
USSR - 2589 successful, 181 failed, 93.5% success rate
USA - 1152 successful, 164 failed, 87.5% success rate
EU - 117 sucessful, 12 failed, 90.7% success rate
China - 56 successful, 11 failed, 83.6% success rate
Japan - 52 successful, 9 failed, 85.2% success rate
India - 7 successful, 6 failed, 53.8% success rate
see more recent data:
Well, this is some old a$$ data, our success rate is in fact more than 94%.
Wow what was the success rate of all te countries after first 10 odd launches?
And check this
And yes you forgot India's PSLV which is 18/20 which means 90%.
Typical Chinese, hijacking a thread.
other members were accusing china of assisting, but i dunno from where India came from. mods, please clean this thread before flame war. The success rate for Indian launches is around 68%, 24 successful out of 35 launches. As technology matures, i am sure success rate will improve.
Maybe... the most reliable components of N.Korea rocket is ...Self Destruction system !
The report says that the rocket broke apart soon after the launch, so it is not difficult to locate the rocket which broke apart soon after it is launched.
I think the Chinese are very good at locating only the missiles which fall apart soon after the launch. If this is he case then this shows the ability of their radars to find the enemies on their radars.
