Recoverable Kwangmyongsong?
« on: 11/03/2017 12:25 PM »
One should always treat North Korea's spaceflight plans with more than a little skepticism but I have just found the attached illustration apparently depicting the recovery of a North Korean satellite:

Is it possible for someone to translate the captions, please?

Apologies - I posted this in the wrong section!   Could an administrator switch it to the "Other Launches" section please?

Edit/Lar: Done.

That picture shows the recovering a capsule ejected from the satellite. Maybe they're doing photographic film return? This is very old technology that others have abandoned but could still be useful for NK.
