Report: Attempted launch of satellite by Iran fails 

A statement by the Pentagon confirmed that the attempt took place on June 12

Experts at the Middlebury Institute of International Affairs at Monterrey said Iran is once again making preparations to launch a satellite into space using a Simorgh rocket, according to a report by CNN.   

According to the report, the Pentagon was watching earlier this month as Iran attempted, and failed, to launch a satellite into orbit. 

"U.S. Space Command is aware of the Iranian rocket launch failure which occurred early June 12th," said the Pentagon spokesman, Lt. Col. Uriah Orland, in a statement to CNN.
