Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) successfully launched a new solid-fueled space rocket. Iran claims that the rocket, called the Ghaem-100, will be able to put an 80-kilogram payload into a 500-kilometer orbit. The head of the IRGC Aerospace Force Amir Ali Hajizadeh said that the rocket would soon be used to place a Nahid satellite into orbit.
