North Korean missile threat forced Singapore Airlines to reroute flights

North Korean missile threat forced Singapore Airlines to reroute flights

North Korea routinely fails to follow that rule and has ignored several letters from the ICAO urging it to inform airline officials of its plan to launch missiles.

He said: "These two images from the same viewpoint, but dramatically different star backgrounds".

He also told CNN: "You should see constellations that are opposites in the sky".

North Korea's new missile was reportedly a new type of nuclear-capable ICBM called the Hwasong-15. It was reported that he determined the direction of the photos based on the shape of the plumes of smoke coming out of the engine of the rocket.

Sam Allardyce to miss first European game in charge of Everton
The Everton boss will not travel with the squad and it is understood Craig Shakespeare will take charge for the European clash with Apollon Limassol.

North Korea has a reputation of altering images it releases to the world, tampering with everything from Kim Jong Un's ears to hovercrafts conducting an amphibious landing. Langbroek suggested the images may have been composites, because they picture star constellations that should not appear next to each other.

Jonathan McDowell, an astronomer at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, pointed out to CNN that the stars in the photo looked too clear for a picture capturing a missile's rapid ascent.

But in picturing the missile as it ascends into the night sky, photographers would have used a fast shutter speed that would not have captured the stars as clearly as they show in the photos. "Stars just don't look that different a few miles apart, and we have no reason to disbelieve that this launch was from the Pyongsong region north of Pyongyang".

Defense Secretary James Mattis said he still had confidence in diplomatic efforts to address the North Korea situation, but that the US also has military options available.

Taggart to be next Florida State football coach, AP reports
The person says Taggart has called a team meeting to inform his OR players he is heading to Tallahassee to replace Jimbo Fisher. The 41-year old succeeds Jimbo Fisher , who left for Texas A&M Monday after 11 seasons with FSU, including eight as head coach.

In August, Air France-KLM expanded its no-fly zone around North Korea after a missile test.

That's an important data point that helps experts calculate everything from range to payload. This can be a harder task to achieve at nighttime, when only the stars can give an idea as to the launch location, rather than daytime, when background landmarks offer more clues about the site.

Those weren't the only images that appear to have been tampered with.

But spy satellite tracker Marco Langbroek delivered a blow to Pyongyang when he branded the images fakes.

Huawei P11 rumoured to feature triple lens camera
According to some newly leaked Huawei ads, it seems that the Chinese company isn't satisfied with being in a tie for second place. There are four different parts of the "PCE-series" ad, each featuring a different aspect of the device's cameras and software.

"Aesthetics I think. Or just to play with analysts", Langbroek said, answering a question about North Korea's motivation in changing the pictures.
