Posted: Sat, Aug 26, 2023, 12:14 PM ET (1614 GMT)
For the second time in three months, a North Korean spy satellite has failed to reach orbit. A Chollima-1 rocket lifted off from a launch site in Tongchang-ri, North Korea, at 2:40 pm EDT (1840 GMT) Wednesday. However, North Korea's news agency said the launch failed because of an "error in the emergency blasting system" in the rocket's third stage. Debris from the rocket fell into the ocean east of the Philippines. The rocket was carrying a military reconnaissance satellite called Malligyong-1. A similar launch at the end of May also failed, but in an earlier phase of the rocket's flight.
