Iran Launches First Military Satellite Into Orbit


BY BRENT NAGTEGAAL

JERUSALEM – Iran has successfully launched its first-ever military satellite into orbit. The launch took place Wednesday morning, and the satellite is currently orbiting in space 425 kilometers above the Earth.

The successful launch comes after numerous failed attempts in the past two years to put such a military satellite in space. But the launch from this Wednesday did not fail, and this should be cause for concern.

The danger of such a launch is that very similar technology is shared between launching such a satellite and launching intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs).

Basically, if Iran can lunch a space satellite like this into orbit, it also has the ability to launch a nuclear weapon through space.
