North Korea has chosen a peculiar name for it’s fledgling space agency.

NADA, or the National Aerospace Development Administration’s mission, according to the state-run “Korea Central News Agency” is to “put into practice the idea and principle of the DPRK government to develop the space for peaceful purpose.”

The chosen “Great Bear” constellation, according to KCNA “reflects the will of the space scientists of the DPRK to glorify Kim Il Sung’s and Kim Jong Il’s Korea as a space power.”

Surprisingly, the isolated nation is against the weaponisation into the realm of space (something brought to light in the recent Call of Duty: Ghosts and the ODIN program)

It is not known yet whether NASA will choose the path of recording artists and sue NADA for copyright.
