North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong Un, says the country is ready to send their first ever military spy satellite to space. They have planned to launch it on an unknown date so we will not know when. North Korea has already proven that they can launch satellites into space using missiles and rockets.
Many experts are wondering if the satellites cameras are good enough for high quality pictures. Previous pictures from old satellite tests have shown low quality and low resolution pictures. On Kim’s visit to the aerospace agency, Kim has stated that having a satellite is crucial for the country to effectively use its capable nuclear missiles. Kim Jong Un says that there are serious security threats by “the most hostile rhetoric and explicit actions” by the US and South Korea. Kim is hoping to pressure his rivals on issues including joint military drills and international economic sanctions on North Korea.
I think that this is something we should be worried about because this could be a threat to the US, South Korea, Japan, ect. Many countries around the world have begun practice drills for North Korea's missiles. That alone just goes to show that this satellite is going to become a big threat.
What is your opinion on North Korea's satellite?
Do you think Nato should do something about it?
