SOHAE LAUNCH FACILITY, NORTH KOREA-NOVEMBER 26, 2012: This satellite image of the Sohae Launch Facility on November 26, 2012, shows a marked increase in activity at North Korea's Sohae (West Sea) Satellite Launch Station. This activity is consistent with launch preparations as witnessed prior to the failed April 13, 2012 launch of the Unha 3 (i.e., Universe or Galaxy 3) space launch vehicle (SLV) carrying the Kwangmyongsong 3 (i.e., Bright Lodestar 3). Given the observed level of activity noted of a new tent, trucks, people and portable fuel/oxidizer tanks, should North Korea desire- it could possibly conduct its fifth satellite launch event during the next three weeks (e.g., by mid-Decemember 2012) (Photo DigitalGlobe via Getty Images)
