S. Korean, US experts to look at N. Korean rockets parts

The ROK Navy has recovered a pretty big chunk of the first stage of the North Korean rocket, and Korean warships are looking for even more.

The Defense Ministry will be handing over the parts to the Daejeon-based Agency for Defense Development, the Korean equivalent of DARPA. According to Ye Olde Chosun, American experts will be taking a look at the missile chunks, too. In addition to providing expertise on Soviet and Iranian missile technology, they may also establish missile connections between North Korea, Iran and Syria.

    Someone has a certain actress on the mind: that link goes to the Bae Doo-na story…

    Bae Doo-na is a ‘pretty big chunk’?. Pretty yes. Big – well, quite a star, but a chunk? Nope. I think a shot of some DPRK hardware not some ROK ‘software’ should be at this link?

    The lesson to be learned is that when Iran, Syrian and North Korea puts their minds together, they can send an oven wrapped in aluminum foil into space.
