And this has already caused concern in some countries.
Iranian media shared information that local experts had successfully launched the Zol-Janah launch vehicle.
At the same time, representatives of the Ministry of Defense of the country announced the launch of the rocket exclusively for scientific purposes.
It is reported that the design of the 25.5-meter rocket consists of three stages, two of which operate on solid fuel, and one on liquid. At the same time, it is known that the carrier itself weighs 52 tons, and its carrying capacity reaches 220 kg. The maximum orbit that the device can reach is 500 km.
Interestingly, the United States and a number of other countries have already expressed concerns about the potential use of the Iranian space program to develop military technologies, including for the creation and production of ballistic missiles.
