North Korea’s space agency’s logo is suspiciously familiar . . . but somehow seems like a whole lot of nothing

After successfully (?) launching the Kwangmyŏngsŏng-4 satellite, North Korea has announced the formation of a civilian space agency, the National Aerospace Development Administration, and gave it a logo with Roman characters that looks . . . oddly familiar.

Though of course they don’t admit it, the logo is clearly inspired by NASA’s famous meatball.  If only they’d taken a moment to wonder if “NADA” spelled anything slightly embarrassing in common Roman-character languages . . . .
