Re: BREAKING: North Korean Satellite Tumbling Out of Control
It's called a nice diversionary tactic concocted by all of the being eliminated 'powers that be' - for when the Fire from the sky comes, they will just blame a 'north korean satellite' to try to hide the Truth. But the Truth cannot be hidden. Their lies, just like themselves, are being negated - by the hour.

There is no escape. Not even their bunkers can save them...

NORTH KOREA DEFIES WARNINGS IN ROCKET LAUNCH SUCCESS NORTH KOREA DEFIES WARNINGS IN ROCKET LAUNCH SUCCESS - North Korea has successfully launched a long-range rocket, defying international warnings. The rocket, launched at 09:49 local time (00:49 GMT), appears to have followed its planned trajectory, with stages falling in expected areas. North Korea says a satellite has been placed in orbit; the US confirmed an object had been put into space. South Korea, the US and Japan have condemned the launch as a disguised test of long-range missile technology. More

NORTH KOREA NORTH KOREA "DISMANTLING ROCKET TO FIX TECHNICAL GLITCH" - North Korea has started to dismantle a controversial long-range rocket on its launch pad in an apparent move to fix a technical problem but still looks likely to go ahead with the launch, South Korean news reports and experts said on Tuesday. North Korea says the launch is to put a weather satellite in orbit but critics say it is aimed at nurturing the kind of technology needed to mount a nuclear warhead on a long-range missile. More

ROBOTIC SPACE PLANE X-37B LAUNCHED FOR CLASSIFIED AIR FORCE MISSION ROBOTIC SPACE PLANE X-37B LAUNCHED FOR CLASSIFIED AIR FORCE MISSION - An experimental robotic space plane was launched into orbit atop an Atlas V rocket Tuesday for a classified Air Force mission that could last more than nine months. The 19-story Atlas V and the space plane, dubbed the X-37B Orbital Test Vehicle, blasted off from Cape Canaveral in Florida just after 1 p.m. Eastern time. The unmanned X-37B, which resembles a miniature space shuttle, is 29 feet long with a wingspan of 15 feet. The spacecraft draws solar power for energy using unfolding panels. More

Built by Boeing’s secretive Phantom Works in Huntington Beach, Calif., the Air Force X-37B spacecraft is rumored to be everything from a space bomber to a satellite-killer or a test-bed for advanced spy satellite sensors. The Air Force is revealing little. More

RUSSIAN SATELLITE LAUNCH FAILS TO REACH PROPER ORBIT RUSSIAN SATELLITE LAUNCH FAILS TO REACH PROPER ORBIT - The Russian space industry suffered another malfunction Saturday when the upper stage of the heavy-lift Proton rocket failed to perform the full duration of its final boost-burn, leaving a domestic telecommunications satellite in a lower-than-planned orbit at the end of a 9-hour flight from the Baikonur Cosmodrome. Launch of the Yamal 402 spacecraft occurred at the precise moment of 1313:43 GMT (8:13:43 a.m. EST) atop the Proton M/Breeze M vehicle combination en route to geosynchronous transfer orbit. More

No reason was given, but recent commercial satellite images — published jointly by the North Korea blog, operated by technology journalist Martyn Williams, and the 38 North, a project of the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies — indicated that preparations for the launch had been delayed by snowfall.

NORTH KOREA PLANS ROCKET LAUNCH WITHIN DAYS NORTH KOREA PLANS ROCKET LAUNCH WITHIN DAYS - North Korea plans to launch a rocket carrying a satellite between December 10 and 22, a spokesman for the Korean Committee for Space Technology said Saturday, according to state-run media. The Unha-3 rocket will launch from the Sohae Space Center in North Phyongan Province and put a "working satellite" into orbit, the report by the official Korean Central News Agency said. The planned launch is unusual because it comes during the wintertime and only months after a failed attempt in April. More

He is right, look here is its orbital altitude info:

Perigee: 505.5 km
Apogee: 588.5 km

As the satellite travels from the Apogee to the Perigee it will be descending in altitude. As it travels from the Perigee to the Apogee it will gaining altitude.

It has the DeltaV for a proper orbit, and it does not dip into the atmosphere to aero-brake. It is a stable orbit.

 Quoting: godzilla85


Yes, part of getting into orbit you end up with one end higher than the other. Then once at the highest point (apogee), you burn along the prograde (the direction your headed) and that in turn brings up the altitude of your lowest point (perigee).

You use these maneuvers to "circularize" to the height you want with it even on both sides.

We don't know what the flight profile of this satellite was, maybe this was the intended orbit, or maybe the satellite malfunctioned before it had a chance to circularize its orbit better.

They seem to name all their satellites the same thing= Kwangmyongsong-3 and they have had a few failures under this name. Maybe the name is jinxed and they should think up a new one.
