Iran's space achievements after the Islamic Revolution

It is a major acknowledgment when they admit that the Islamic Republic of Iran stroke the rivals and enemies with awe by launching satellites into space- Iran is the 9th or 10th country that has done so.

Who helped science progress to such a degree in Iran? Who founded the scientific movement in Iran? Who has put the inherited #Iranian talent in the service of innovation and invention? The Islamic establishment. It was the Islamic establishment [in Iran] that proved both its perpetuity and its capability to make a nation progress.
