State media lauds DPRK's efforts to become a "space power," hints at continued extra-terrestrial ambitions

North Korean state television on Thursday aired a new segment exploring the origins of the National Aerospace Development Administration (NADA) logo, reiterating Pyongyang's long-time goal of becoming a "space power."
