Like Father, Like Son...He just couldn't get it up either.
North Korea state media acknowledged today that the long-range test rocket that the country launched in defiance of much of the world failed to enter orbit. The 90-ton rocket launched at 6:39 p.m. ET Thursday, but 81 seconds into the launch the U.S. detected a substantially larger than expected flare and by 10 minutes after launch, the rocket was no longer on several radar screens, U.S. officials said.
