MANILA, Philippines — The North Korean rocket has failed to launch? Maybe these theories by netizens can shed light on why the autocratic country was not able to successfully carry out its mission.
On Friday, the North Korean government led by Kim Jong-Un pushed through with its planned rocket launch but the object exploded mid-flight and was not able to make its intended destination
“It seems that the rocket has failed,” ministry spokesman Kim Min-Seok told journalists, according to reports.
Relieved yet amused at the failed rocket launch, netizens from around the world decided to offer their own theories as to why the mission failed, most of them hilarious beyond measure:
According to reports, the timing of the launch was intended to coincide with the 100th birthday of the reclusive nation’s founder, Kim Il-sung.
The debris of the rocket reportedly fell near the waters of South Korea, in which the Northern peninsular territory has a long-standing strife.
The Philippines has filed a diplomatic protest against North Korea this week since the rocket debris was supposed to fall near the country’s northeastern waters.
