Nahid (Persian: ناهید, meaning "Venus") is an Iranian solar-powered communication satellite with a planned launch to low Earth orbit in September 2019. An explosion occurred on the launch pad during launch preparation on 29 August 2019, though the satellite itself was apparently not part of the test and remains undamaged.
