Experts: North Korea’s ICBM could reach targets as far away as Boston, New York

North Korea conducted yet another ballistic missile test on Friday, but this one may have been the most ominous yet.  The North Korean Hwasong-14 missile, which derives its name from the Korean word for Mars, reached a peak altitude of 2,314.5 miles and remained airborne for a whopping 47 minutes and 12 seconds before ultimately splashing down into the sea between North Korea and Japan some 620 miles or so from its launch pad.

Experts agree that this is yet another improvement over previous tests, the most recent of which indicated North Korea had the capability to strike U.S. targets as far away as Alaska.
