    Apologies for resurrecting an old thread, but I would just like to point
    out that Ted's original theory from the April launch attempt (the North
    Korean's couldn't launch into SSO directly) was spot-on.  It appears that
    they did in fact do a dog leg to hit a sun-sync inclination, just with the
    third stage instead of the first. That I think caught us all by surprise
    because it's a very sophisticated operation.
