Iran’s military satellite a ‘tumbling webcam in space,’ U.S. Space Force commander says

The first satellite launched into space by Iran last week that revealed the country’s secret military space program is nothing but “a tumbling webcam in space,” the head of the U.S military’s newest service said Saturday.

Iran’s Revolutionary Guard said Wednesday it put up a “Noor,” or “Light,” satellite into a low orbit circling the Earth after using a mobile launcher at a new launch site.

U.S. Space Force commander Gen. Jay Raymond gave his military assessment on Twitter late Saturday afternoon of the satellite.

“Iran states it has imaging capabilities—actually, it’s a tumbling webcam in space,” he tweeted.
