Airlines Are Rerouting Flights to Avoid North Korean Missiles

Three chees North Korean leader Kim Jong Un celebrates after giving an order to test-fire the newly developed inter-continental ballistic rocket Hwasong-15

The change involves the airline's Seoul-Los Angeles flights and was put in place following Pyongyang's July 27 missile launch into the Sea of Japan, the company reportedly told Channel NewsAsia. According to Dr. Marco Langbroek, Space Situational Awareness consultant at Leiden University in the Netherlands, close inspection of the pictures revealed inconsistencies.

When North Korean state media outlets claimed to provide visual evidence of a Hwasong-15 mobile launched intercontinental ballistic missile test, the photos they used were fake, according an analysis of the stars featured in the photos. North Korea state media reported the Hwasong-15 reached an altitude of 4,475 kilometers (2,800 miles), putting the "whole" U.S. mainland in range.

"Two images from clearly same viewpoint, but dramatically different star backgrounds!" "One shows Orion, which is south-southeastwest". He posted two other images of the launch taken from opposite directions but surprisingly showing the same constellation in the background.

A Japan Airlines spokesman said the cockpit crew of one of its airliners, flying from Tokyo to London, "saw a bright flame falling down" over the sea of Japan.

"They looked so crisp, that just didn't seem right to me", said Jonathan McDowell, an astronomer at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics who corresponds with Langbroek.

Also, all three major league outfielders - Mike Trout , Justin Upton and Kole Calhoun - are now signed through 2020, at least. Banuelos, 21, hit.236 with four home runs in 36 games for the Class A Everett (Wash.) AquaSox after signing in July.

"In the clean dark sky, you can see flashes from a missile from that long distance", he said. "That is not the case". Langbroek suggested the images may have been composites, because they picture star constellations that should not appear next to each other.

So, I just discovered that the North Koreans DID tamper with their #Hwasong15 launch photo's!

"I am skeptical about the stars, it's hard to get stars and foreground objects in same pic-is it possible it's photoshop", he said. I started to look at the pictures of the actual launch moment.

The ICBM was sacked on a lofted trajectory rather than a minimum energy trajectory, putting more structural stress on the missile's re-entry vehicle but reducing the duration and intensity of temperature-based stresses.
