PYONGYANG, North Korea " North Korea's Space Force has for the first time successfully launched a "totally willing human" into space, according to a press release from the Korean Central News Agency.

"Under the divine guidance of Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un, the dauntless people of Korea have colonized the heavens.

From the cited article...

..."Cosmonaut Mun was steadfast and resolute, from the time he left his farm to volunteer as our heavenly emissary, to three days later when he was launched into the void. Kim Il Sung surely smiles upon him."...

A maximum of three days training for a "totally willing" person who had been working on a farm three days earlier?

I am left to wonder why the government of North Korea felt they needed to say the "totally willing" part.

The Norks deployed some human capital stock to space. The Norks and US aristocrats use the 'willing' poor to do their bidding. May the odds forever be in their favor.

I wonder how they compensated for the asymmetric drag?

Early reports from unverified sources write that the "totally willing" cosmonaut has no desire to return to Earth ;)

Someone should tell Trump that Obama really wanted to go into space, but was too chicken.
