North Korea, poised to conduct a nuclear test any day now, has posted a video on YouTube depicting a US city resembling New York engulfed in flames after an apparent missile attack.
he footage was uploaded on Saturday by the North's official website, Uriminzokkiri, which distributes news and propaganda from the state media.
The video is shot as a dream sequence, with a young man seeing himself on board a North Korean space shuttle launched into orbit by the same type of rocket Pyongyang successfully tested in December.
As the shuttle circles the globe - to the tune of "We Are the World" - the video zooms in on countries below, including a joyfully re-unified Korea.
In contrast, the focus then switches to a city - shrouded in the US flag - under apparent missile attack with its skyscrapers, including what appears to be the Empire State Building, either on fire or in ruins.
"Somewhere in the United States, black clouds of smoke are billowing," runs the caption across the screen.
"It seems that the nest of wickedness is ablaze with the fire started by itself," it added.
The video ends with the young man concluding that his dream will "surely come true".
"Despite all kinds of attempts by imperialists to isolate and crush us... never will anyone be able to stop the people sex marching toward a final victory," it said.
The North is expected to conduct its nuclear test as a defiant response to UN sanctions imposed after its December rocket launch.
How awesome would it be to sit at the gears of a fighter jet and see the world from tens of thousands of feet above ground at speeds of hundreds of miles per hour? Most of us will never get the opportunity to fly a fighter jet, of course, but worry not, you can now experience the view.

The year is 1967: broadcast journalist and "most trusted man in America" Walter Cronkite hosts CBS's The 21st Century, a show that unveils midcentury predictions for the future—forecasts with varied accuracy but pretty much universal amusement value. In one of the early episodes, Cronkite tours the home of 2001: a place where multi-purpose entertainment centers are the heart of the home and where in-house offices are commonplace. See, by 2001, technological advancements would increase work efficiency and reduce the work week to 30 hours; all that extra time would be spent with family at home, watching movies "shown in full-color on our big, 3D screen" and listening to "stereophonic music from another age." In the kitchen of 2001, Cronkite says meals "are programmed, the menus given to the automatic chef by a typewriter or punched computer cards." In the office, find the world's strangest telephone, plus a console that "provides a summary of news relayed by satellite from all over the world." Watch Cronkite explore each prediction—from the eerily accurate to the semi-ridiculous—in the videos below.

In the promo, he urges viewers to “try to relate” and “go vegan.”
Black holes are, by their very nature, impossible to spot. Only when a cosmic sinkhole's immense gravitational pull begins sucking in nearby planets, gas, and light trying to outrace it do astronomers even begin to pinpoint one. But when they do, whoa boy.
Take this special case, 47 million light years away in the galaxy NGC 4845 — typically a quaint, quiet neighborhood, at least for the better part of the past two to three decades. Scientists were using the European Space Agency's Integral space telescope to observe another galaxy when they noticed some funny energy spikes emanating from NGC 4845's slice of suburbia.
