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.
