I'd like to see more launches. I don't think three launches is nearly enough to form a solid basis for a space launch engineering program. I'd like to see dozens of launches. Three or four a year, or more. Stand 'em up, light 'em off, and consume telemetry until, like Mr. Creosote, they are in danger of rupturing.
Speaking of space launch engineering programs, I'd like to see more details about that. I'd like to see a coherent, phased plan for building knowledge upon knowledge and expertise upon expertise, going from simple prototypes to commercial-grade payload delivery systems.
Speaking of payload delivery systems, I'd like to see a detailed program about that, too. I'd like to see a plan for a series of payloads with practical applications--sounding rockets, survey satellites, observatories, etc.
And since in this global world, where there are many space programs that have already gone where North Korea has yet to go, I'd like to see international teams--North Koreans sharing their vision for orbital science with experts from other space agencies, and learning from them. I'd like to see North Korean payload specialists learning the state of the art from their peers around the world, and then contributing to advancing the state of the art.
That last I'd like to see most of all: North Korea's position on the globe is sub-optimal for delivering payloads to orbit. I think they could contribute more to the global space program in terms of payload design and support, working with global partners at joint launch facilities near the equator, than in developing their own orbital launch capabilities. Or they could become a major contributor to sea launch technology.
So that's what I'd like to see.
