    While you have a point, neither of those countries spent half of their national budget to finance a missile launch, especially with most of their people subsisting on foreign aid. So I wouldn't quite go as far as to describe it as impressive.

    Hey, one of their Taepodong-2's splashed down after 40-something seconds. 90 seconds is great success!

    Since when are attempts impressive?

    Failure in the US and the SU (post stalin) wasn't punished by imprisonment or death nor was it carried out when most of the population was severely malnourished.

    No way to tell how far it traveled yet. Would need to know it's trajectory, speed, rate of acceleration, stuff like that. I'm a bit of a rocket hobbyist myself.

    One thing guys its still to early to celebrate, remember this rocket is based on the old Taepodong-2 missile, in such no modern changes or advances. The North may have been planning that the test would fail and why they have the new third generation rocket that was recently spotted by intel sats outside the capital that is expected to be showcased this week, they will likely now announce they are moving past the primitive space launcher with the new advanced test platform that we will soon be launched.

    If you wanted to soft-kill it, there are a whole bunch of AEGIS ships in the area. SPY can throw out a hell of a signal if you crank it up.

    can you guesstimate since following are kinda known?
    Tracjector - known
    speed - can use data from previous launch or similar rocket
    rate of acceleration - can use data from previous launch or similar rocket
