Posted: Thu, Jun 24, 2021, 7:16 PM ET (2316 GMT)
The Defense Department confirmed that Iran suffered a launch failure earlier this month but appears to be preparing for another launch. Analysis of commercial satellite imagery showed preparations for a launch in early June at Imam Khomeini Spaceport. However, Iran never announced a launch, and therw were no signs of any payloads being placed into orbit. The Pentagon said it believed Iran attempted a launch June 12, likely of a Simorgh rocket, which failed to reach orbit. More recent commercial imagery shows signs of another launch campaign underway at the spaceport.
