Iran launches first satellite (with video), Telegraph

"The launch of the Omid satellite, meaning Hope, was timed to coincide with the 30th anniversary of the Islamic revolution and United Nations talks aimed at stopping Iran's nuclear programme. "Dear Iranians, your children have put the first indigenous satellite into orbit," said President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in a broadcast on state television. "With this launch the Islamic Republic of Iran has officially achieved a presence in space." The launch has highlighted international concerns that Iran will use domestically developed space technology to develop intercontinental nuclear missiles."
