Picture of the Day: Rocket Promotion

Ha Kwang-joon, the chief petty officer of the navy, poses after being promoted one rank with an order of merit for his detection of North Korea's April 13 rocket launch at an award ceremony aboard South Korea's Aegis-equipped destroyer, the Sejong the Great, in a naval base in Jinhae, 410 kilometers southeast of Seoul, on April 27, 2012. Ha was the first to detect the North's rocket launch 45 seconds after its liftoff amid intense surveillance from related countries, including the United States and Japan. The Unha 3 rocket exploded and broke into pieces in mid-air after flying just one or two minutes. (Yonhap)
