    Latest report by Craig Covault, of Spaceflight Now:
    "New details emerging from the analysis of data from North Korea's April 5
    Taepo-Dong-2 test indicate the vehicle flew successfully several hundred miles
    further than previously believed and used more advanced steering than has been
    demonstrated by the North Korean's before.
    The rocket impacted as far as 2,390 miles from the launch site as opposed to
    about 1,900 miles as earlier announced by the U. S. and Japan."
