In this July 26, 2013, photo, North Korean soldiers walk past models of the Unha 3 space launch vehicle, left, which successfully delivered North Korea’s first satellite into orbit, and the Unha 9, which would carry a lunar orbiter, on display at an annual flower show held in honor of late leaders Kim Il Sung and his son, Kim Jong Il, in Pyongyang, North Korea. The Unha 3 rocket that launched the “Bright Star” satellite into space in 2012 is a symbol of North Korea’s technological successes and a matter of great national pride. The country plans another launch to put an Earth observation satellite into orbit in February 2016. Although the equipment it will use is not yet known, the launch could also advance its military-use missile technology further. (AP Photo/Wong Maye-E)
