North Korea may view the United States as the great imperial enemy, but that didn’t keep it from cribbing off NASA’s logo in designing its own space agency’s graphics, the Guardian reports.

The publication points out that both logos incorporate a blue globe with swooshed rings around it.

The Guardian nasa-space-agency-logo” target=”_blank”>reports: “The agency said the logo was released to mark the first anniversary of North Korea’s National Aerospace Development Administration, a name shortened on the emblem to Nada, the Spanish word for ‘nothing,’ arguably also an unfortunate coincidence given this seems to be precisely what the country’s only successfully launched satellite is transmitting to Earth, leading overseas scientists to assume it has malfunctioned.”
