New hangar under construction at Iran's space center (Semnan site). This is a slide from a presentation to Iranian president, from today.
That image kinda look like the Sprung structures used by SpaceX. So is it a Sprung structure?

Iranian small remote sensing satellite, PARS-1, attached to the upper stage of Soyuz SLV. The satellite was successfully launched this morning from cosmodrome Vostochny and its telemetry was received in Tehran.

Iran used an ISRAELI satellite rendering to present its own satellite to IRI president Raisi… The satellite in question is "Tecsar", made by IAI. BTW, the rendering is from 2008....

While this might seem like somebody in Iran making an inside joke or teasing the Israelis, it is incredibly common now for organizations to use photos of ships and aircraft belonging to the wrong countries in their advertising. An ad for the TV show "NCIS Hawaii" showed a Russian ship instead of a US Navy ship, for example. Happens all the time.

There are total 35 threads now in this section about Iranian spaceflight. And there will be more. What do you think about moving then to a dedicated section "Iranian spaceflight"?

Most of these threads are about launchers and launches, but some about satellites and space policy.

I don't think that needs a separate section when even South Korea that has a far more advanced space programme both in terms of launch vehicle development and satellite deployment, as well as space science and exploration and international cooperation doesn't have one. Don't forget to consider South Korea's new space sector which is also far more active than that of Iran.

More importantly, I don't think South Korea needs a separate section either as of current. Maybe in two or so years (they will publish a long-term national space exploration roadmap this year, a first of it's kind for Korean space programme), but not yet.

For now, an index suffice, and that's also the reason I've made one
