Now this makes things interesting. Someone with the right equipment has all they need to confirm whether North Korea actually put up a satellite or not. This whole sat-launch/missile-test thing has really piqued my interest. So many interesting factors in play.
I also note that no one tried to shoot it down, or at least, no one is claiming an attempt was made. I figured that would be the case. Ballistic Missile Interception still is in its childhood. Its not a 100% guarantee. And why expose any potential weaknesses in your system by making an attempt to shoot it down, and failing?
