Feudal Fight over A Big Lie Called Khayyam Rocket Launch

Although the Russian embassy in Tehran announced last night that this country has built the recently launched satellite on behalf of the Iranian regime, the regime’s President Ebrahim Raisi claimed today at a cabinet meeting that “the Khayyam satellite” was national pride and thanked Iranian experts for placing it into the orbit.

Meanwhile, contradicting statements of other officials are speaking volumes of Tehran’s desperate need for any kind of achievement.

The head of the regime’s Space Organization admitted the Khayyam satellite was built by a Russian company. At a press conference, Hassan Salarieh said: “The Khayyam satellite was built by a Russian company and it was ordered by Iran. This satellite reached the stage of construction based on the parameters determined by Iran and under Iran’s supervision. This project is estimated at 40 million dollars.”

The state-run Eslahatnews wrote: “The Khayyam satellite was launched yesterday by a Russian rocket from the Baikonur space base in Kazakhstan. Immediately after the launch, the government began to claim the achievement of this project.”

The official IRNA news agency called the Khayyam satellite “an Iranian satellite”, which has been achieved as a result of the efforts of the Raisi government.

Meanwhile, Mohammad Javad Azari Jahormi, the regime’s former Minister of Communications claimed it was merely an accomplishment of the Rouhani administration and considered this a national achievement.

Higher Education Less Accessible for Ordinary Iranians

The discussion regarding changes to the annual university entrance exam in Iran (konkour) has been going on for a few years among politicians and analysts in Iran.

It has been two months since Iran’s Supreme Council of Cultural Revolution ratified changes to the annual university entrance exams. According to this decree, starting from 2023, the annual entrance exam will be held twice a year and only for the specialized courses in each field. Based on this, the entrance exam’s share of measuring students’ academic ability decreased from 100% to 40%, and the remaining 60% of the share of entering the university is determined based on the academic records of the last three years of high school. Also, students are allowed to re-do their 10th, 11th, and 12th-year exams to improve their GPA up to 10 times.
