Iran Launches a Space Capable Missile

Iran has reportedly launched a missile, built internally, that can reach the edge of space. Iran's Defense Ministry has not released the date of the test, however.

This does not represent an increase in Iran's missile capability "The performance is similar to that of existing solid-propellant Iranian tactical missiles," Doug Richardson, editor of the defence industry publication Jane's Missiles and Rockets has said.

Iranian defence minister Mostafa Mohammad Najjar said that Iran was planning to develop its own satellite and launch technology.
