I smell a comedy sketch material.

"Hey, Abbot does the North Koreans have a space program?"

Yes NADA!

Well do they or don't they?

I said NADA!

So they don't have any!

I didn't say that!

But you said NADA

Exactly?

Third Base that, biatch!!

I can just hear the conversation that got the whole thing started.

"Here's the evil one's NASA logo, we want something like it but not exactly"

"Ok Dear Leader, let me think about it a bit"

"No, no, I already did that, just move this letter one key over to the right...."

The name doesn't say anything, it's the acronym.

With engineers from Springfield Heights Institute of Technology?

Contact your local space agency for details.

Many ships.

So travel.

"Nada" means "nothing" in Spanish, which could be said to accurately sum up the Hermit Kingdom's achievements beyond Earth's atmosphere.

Meanwhile "nasa" means "apologies" in Javanese, which could be said to accurately describe our achievements with Columbia and subsequent abandonment of manned space travel.
It also means "aspiration" in Filipino, which is rather poetic, but nonetheless still reflects on the stupidity of saying "'x' means something different in a different language and therefore their use of that in their own language is wrong."

They should put rockets on that big volcano hotel and use it as their star destroyer.

Oh, and:
The fifth attempt, an "observational satellite" launched in December 2012, reached orbit but is "tumbling out of control," according to US officials.

Any satellite that doesn't have an attitude control system "tumbles out of control". Like every satellite the US launched for years. For example, the Explorer 1 tumbled "out of control".

The acronym doesn't say anything. You have to read it.

They spell it with English letters?  Doesn't sound genuine to me, not nearly xenophobic enough for Best Korea.  In Hangul (that's Korean for you running dogs), the name is spelled out 국립 항공 우주 개발 관리.  The acronym, if you're using the first character in each word is 국항개발관.   Kinda rolls off the tongue, no?

Sorry, that acronym would be 국항개관 .  That makes it clearer doesn't it?

Should have called it 'Primary Target'. More accurate.

And they put the Starry Plough in their logo.

Their first heroic spaceflight, their Gagarin and Shepard, was Mork from Ork.

Great Leader damn it, that joke shouldn't have been so obscure but I accidentally a button here and there.

Simple typo by the intern. The "S" key is right next to the "D" key.

The abbreviated version in the logo pic would be 国家宇宙開発局 in characters, wouldn't it? In which case yeah, bog standard name (at least from Japanese sensibilities)...

(Can kinda half-ass guess Korean words that originate from Chinese...)

It will be a cold day in hell, when the Great Leader lets an actor tell HIM what to do!

Who wants to tell the reporter that anything in orbit is actually in free fall?

The NASA "worm" looks so 70s. The last one is actually still used on ID badges.

/trivia: the current logo is referred to as "the blue meatball"

The US has astronauts in orbit right now. I'm pretty sure they plan to bring them back.
