Peter Pry: April 29, 2020

Iran has launched its first military satellite. While Russia and China condemn the U.S. Space Force for "militarizing space," Iran may be developing — or may already have in orbit — an offensive space super-weapon of awesome power. On Weds. April 22, Iran successfully orbited its first military satellite, launched by the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), the world’s most powerful state-sponsored terrorist organization. The satellite on its first orbit apparently passed over the United States.Trajectory of the IRGC’s "Nour" ("Light") satellite overflies the United States from south to north, from the U.S. blind and defenseless side where there are no Ballistic Missile Early Warning System radars and no National Missile Defense interceptors.
