Terminology[ edit ] Many private space travelers have objected to the term "space tourist", often pointing out that their role went beyond that of an observer, since they also carried out scientific experiments in the course of their journey.

The United States, Japan, South Korea and the European Union accused the North Korean regime of breaching UN resolutions that ban the country from carrying out ballistic missile activity and called for a strong and unified response.
China and Russia, however, urged a more cautious response. This provocation underscores the need for action, not just this afternoon at the UN Security Council, but in our determination to prevent the spread of these weapons.
Rules must be binding. Violations must be punished. Words must mean something. The world must stand together to prevent the spread of these weapons. Now is the time for a strong international response. The long-range rocket flew over Japan, and North Korean officials hailed the test as a success.
Even as Japanese and South Korean officials condemned the launch, experts say the effort to launch a satellite into orbit is a failure, with the missile landing in the Pacific Ocean. Welcome to Democracy Now! Talk about the significance of this launch.
North Korea is not exactly on the top of the priority list for the Obama administration, and North Korea is trying to figure out how to get closer to the top. Talk about exactly what was launched, was it a failure, and what this means for the world. Well, it was described by the international community largely as a missile.
North Korea claimed it was a satellite. It looks as though whatever was sent up fell into the Pacific, even though North Korea claims that it put a satellite into orbit.
The importance here is that North Korea can collect some information for its missile program, but by forgoing the opportunity of testing a real missile — in other words, by strictly abiding by the UN resolution — it misses out on some critical information that it could use for its missile program.
So it looks as though North Korea is trying to tread that fine line: It, for instance, signed international protocols regarding satellites and exploration of outer space.
It gave proper notification. So, North Korea is clearly interested in still reaching out, working with, engaging with the international community. Could this lead to war, John Feffer?
Of course, North Korea said that if the United States or Japan tried to shoot down its rocket, that would be an act of war.
It has said that if South Korea joins the Proliferation Security Initiative, it will consider that an act of war.
And South Korea will probably make that decision this week. Nevertheless, I would say that all the countries concerned are not interested in going to war. They all know the consequences, which would be enormous, enormous casualties on the Korean Peninsula.On this page are phone numbers and links to web pages that contain calculators or formulas for you to figure out your future monthly pension benefit for your specific employer and pension plan.
