    More News on the Iranian Rocket ‘Splosion

    This image taken from President Donald Trump’s Twitter account shows an undated photo of the aftermath of an explosion at Iran’s Imam Khomeini Space Center. The explosion Thursday, Aug. 29, 2019, left the smoldering remains of a rocket on a launch pad at the center, which was to conduct a satellite launch. (Via AP)


    This is an update on the Iranian satellite rocket explosion: https://www.militarytimes.com/news/y...hran-response/


    From the article: DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — The unexplained explosion of a rocket at an Iranian space center grew more mysterious Saturday as President Donald Trump tweeted what appeared to be an American surveillance photo of the site and Tehran showed off a satellite meant to be launched.


    Trump’s tweet showing the aftermath of Thursday’s explosion at the Imam Khomeini Space Center drew a taunting tweet from Iran’s Information and Communications Technology Minister Mohammad Javad Azari Jahromi. However, Jahromi declined to say what went wrong while showing local journalists the Nahid-1 satellite meant to be launched.


    “I have no idea about the Americans’ comment about Semnan space site,” the minister said. “But what could be seen today is that the Nahid satellite is here and has not yet been handed over.” – article

    Okay, sure. (Gigglesnortt!) I have some sand I’d like to sell Jahromi.


    The photo I included in the previous post shows that the Iranians had been attempting to cover up the mess by painting the launch pad blue. Wankers!!

    @HawkTheSlayer the location of the launch site makes it a location nearest to Israel as Iran can make it and keep it protected.

    I would love to find out years from now that the massod was responsible for sabotage.

    Do they really believe they could hide such a fiasco? Oops.

    looks like ignition failure. concrete still in one piece. signifying that rocket never ignited properly.

    Reminds me of the Chinese attempts of the 80s & early 90s (Until Clinton enabled them to enhance guidance and hit Dallas or Chicago then as following few years allowed progression DC & New York & Miami )
