SOHAE SATELLITE LAUCH STATION, TONJCHANG-NI, NORTH KOREA-DECEMBER 12, 2012: This is a satellite image of the launch pad at the Sohae Satellite Launch Station, 54 minutes after the launch of North Korea’s second Unha 3 space launch vehicle. The maintenance platform is folded back against the umbilical tower. The rail-mounted launch pad remains at the base of the tower. The melted snow pattern resulting from the exhaust blast is visible beyond the flame bucket, out to approximately 60m. The launch crew appears to be performing post-launch inspection and clean-up. No vehicles are present near the fuel, oxidizer and support buildings, adjacent to the pad. Vehicles, equipment, and personnel are seen moving throughout the launch facility, most notably at the main administration building. (Photo DigitalGlobe via Getty Images)
