North Korea pulled out all the stops to celebrate its successful Wednesday rocket launch, and it is likely the capital Pyongyang will do it all again next week for the first anniversary of Kim Jong-Un’s taking over at the top.

He is already promising this will be the first of many North Korean satellites that will orbit the Earth one day, fulfilling his family dream of making North Korea a “space powerhouse”.

While Kim was photographed running the show from mission control today’s parade to celebrate the launch as a victory featured three other men close to Kim; his Uncle Jang Song-thaek, political strategist Choe Ryong-hae, and the 84 year-old head of the missile programme Ju Kyu-chamg.

They will share in the kudos, and are likely to figure prominently in the regime’s next move.
