North Koreans dance near a slogan which reads “(we) fervently celebrate the successful launch of the second version of the Kwangmyongsong-3 satellite" during a mass rally organized to celebrate the success of a rocket launch that sent a satellite into space, on Kim Il Sung Square in Pyongyang, North Korea, on Dec. 14, 2012. As the U.S. led international condemnation of what it calls a covert test of missile technology, top North Korean officials denied the allegations and maintained the country's right to develop its space program.
