North Korean Space Agency Copies NASA Logo

TAMPA (CBS Tampa) – Look at the images above. Notice any similarities?

One is the new logo for North Korea’s year-old space agency, the other is the well-known NASA insignia.

And Pyongyang’s copycat ways don’t end there as the official name is the “National Aerospace Development Administration,” reports CNet.

A statement from the state-run Korea Central News Agency says the mission is to  “put into practice the idea and principle of the DPRK government to develop the space for peaceful purpose.”

While it doesn’t directly address the uncanny resemblance to the NASA logo, the press release does say, “(t)he globe represents the DPRK’s idea for peaceful development of the space and the rings show the DPRK’s will to launch satellite into all orbits.”

The program is in its fledgling stage, to say the least.

The initials NADA are also the word nada, which means “nothing” in Spanish.
