North Korea stepped into the space venture in 1998 by attempting to launch satellites, but success was first achieved in December 2012.

Ballistic missiles and the rockets used to launch satellites have similar bodies, engines and other technology.

Following a series of missile test launches and its sixth and most powerful nuclear test to date, the country has renewed its focus on outer space.

Some countries have manipulated United Nations sanctions resolutions against us and hindered the sovereign country's space development.

This time, South Korea confirmed the rocket had put an object into orbit but, according to a USA defense official who spoke to CNN, it was virtually useless.

Feeling constrained by earthly boundaries of regulations, sanctions and conventions, North Korea now looks to the universe as a lawless territory ripe for exploitation.

"The universe is an abundance of mankind, and there are no borders or boundaries in the infinite universe space, such as those on earth's land masses or seas", it added.
