NKorea Launches Satellite Into Orbit

In an historic first, North Korea has launched a satellite into orbit. China says it has no control over what North Korea does. Here's a report by NHK of Japan:

It's worth noting that even the novice North Koreans have onboard camera footage showing the view from the vehicle as it climbs into the sky. And yet ISRO who are preening over 50th anniversaries, and 100th mission milestones, still have yet to give the public even a single thrilling view from an onboard camera shot. India is leapfrogged by yet another backward country. I'm just waiting for North Korean satellite launch technology to now suddenly magically end up in Pakistani hands.
