Iran Attempts Sat Launch
By Micah Halpern
We must carefully monitor and scrutinize the Iranian space program.
Why? Because the same technology that is used for space launches is used for non-conventional weapons launches like nuclear and chemical bombs.
Iran appeared to be readying for a space launch recently as satellite images showed a rocket on a rural desert launch pad. This satellite sighting came as tensions remain high over Tehran's nuclear program.
The images from Maxar Technologies showed a launch pad at Imam Khomeini Spaceport in Iran's rural Semnan province. We have seen many failed launches from this site.
One set of images showed a rocket on a transporter, preparing to be lifted and put on a launch tower. A later image showed the rocket apparently on the tower.
Iran did not acknowledge a forthcoming launch at the spaceport at its mission to the United Nations. That is not surprising.
The Iranians are very secretive about their launches.
