Hello, I'm an avid reader of your posts on Tumblr :) I was just speculating on the validity of the North Korean "hydro-meteorological service". In the picture, it depicts an image which could've only been taken if they had satellite. Seeing that they were unsuccessful with launching there rocket, where exactly do they get these readings? I think for the first time... Kim Jong Un could be saying something worthy of questioning
Thanks for reading and following me! You’re referring to this article, on North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong Un, criticized weather forecasters in his country.
Actually, North Korea has a space program called KCost. They have satellites in orbit, and Kwangmyongsong 3 is the country’s official weather satellite.
Still, weather data is free and readily available on the internet. It’s a matter of having well trained and educated meteorologists, not really a matter of having a satellite in orbit.
