"North Korea's state-run media claimed that the rocket managed to put a satellite in orbit that is now transmitting melodies honoring the communist country's founder, Kim Il Sung, and his son, the current leader, Kim Jung-Il. It is also sending "measurement data back to Earth," North Korean media reported.
But the North American Aerospace Defense Command and Northern Command said no satellite reached orbit.
"Stage one of the missile fell into the Sea of Japan. The remaining stages along with the payload itself landed in the Pacific Ocean. No object entered orbit and no debris fell on Japan," NORAD and NORTHCOM said in a statement. The agencies said the space launch vehicle did not threaten North America or Hawaii and so the U.S. "took no action in response to this launch."
