Space Agency Sanctions

The US has now imposed sanctions on Iran’s space agenices, along with two research organisations. This is on the grounds that Iran is trying to improve their ballistic missile system. US has strictly said that they will not allow Iran to use it’s space center as a cover. (See article: The Nuclear Jumble for more)

This is all part of a year long plan to make sure that Iran does not posses nuclear weapons. The US fears that any space satellite will be used to store nuclear warheads.
