Construction complete at North Korea rocket launch pad, says report

1 post in this topic

SEOUL, July 28 (UPI) -- Construction at a North Korea launch pad has been completed as uncertainty remained over whether Pyongyang will use the structure to send a rocket into orbit.

Satellite images analyzed on 38 North, a Johns Hopkins University website dedicated to North Korea issues, indicated a movable framework for rocket support has been completed since construction began in spring 2015 at Sohae Satellite Launching Station.

The gantry can be used to prepare the rockets horizontally in a new launch support building at the end of the pad, before being moved to another structure that is several stories high.

The station, located in Tongchang-ri, North Pyongan Province, was recently adding an extension to its rocket-launching platform.
