THE STATE News Agency of North Korea has confirmed today that the country has become the first in the world to ever land a man on the sun.
"We are very delighted to announce a successful mission to put a man on the sun." a North Korean central news anchor man said on a live broadcast earlier.
"North Korea has beaten every other country in the world to the sun. Hung Il Gong is a hero and deserves a hero's welcome when he returns home later this evening." The specially trained astronaut is expected to return back to earth at 9pm tonight, where he will meet his uncle and supreme leader Kim Jong-un.
While on the sun, Mr. Hung collected sun spot samples to bring back to his supreme leader as a present.
