Objectivity 4.1 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.7

Iranian state television reported Sunday that Tehran had launched a rocket into space evoking a rebuke from Washington. The launching comes ahead of the expected resumption of talks over Tehran’s nuclear deal. Iran’s nuclear program is growing without international oversight. Although Iran claims the launching has no military purpose, satellite launch vehicles use technology similar to intercontinental ballistic missiles.
