Iran’s space suits found for sale online, actually $20 costumes
The Iranians are ready for space- but they may want to set their space suit budget above twenty-five dollars.
Mohammad-Javad Azari Jahromi, Tehran’s information and communications technology minister, tweeted a photo of what appeared to be an Iranian space suit for future missions.
However, upon closer inspection, it was quickly apparent that the “suit” was nothing more than a child’s costume purchased on Amazon, with “NASA” patches hastily removed.
The costume was quickly found by netizens -mostly fellow Iranians- and mocked for costing only $20.19 on Amazon.com.
So much for Jahromi’s promise of a “bright future.”
The PR failure came not long after the Islamic Republic failed to properly launch a Simorgh rocket, with low velocities contributing to their satellite failing to reach orbit.
