The Brazilians. At one time they were going to build a rocket now they buy their launches from the private sector.

Online there seems to be a concern for environment, floods, remote sensing

Brazil growth and then not much happening, some feats and then accidents and stagnation. August 2021, AEB signed cooperation agreements with space agencies of BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa), to the joint-development of a remote sensing satellite constellation https://www.gov.br/aeb/pt-br/assuntos/n … assinado-4 Brazil Argentina? SABIA-Mar, originally called SAC-E by CONAE, is a planned dual satellite joint Earth observation mission. BINGO (Baryon Acoustic Oscillations from Integrated Neutral Gas Observations) is a 40 m (130 ft) transit radio telescope currently under construction.

Iranian scud or space station space capsule mission?
past claims have sometimes been exposed as failure


Iran Says It Sent Capsule With Animals Into Orbit
https://time.com/6343265/iran-animal-ca … ace-orbit/

It says its satellite program is for scientific research and other civilian applications. The U.S. and other Western countries have long been suspicious of the program because the same technology can be used to develop long-range missiles.

Salman launch vehicle launched a “500kg space bio-capsule to an altitude of 130 km above the Earth” from Iran, on 6 December 2023. Salman is a “new class of launchers capable of carrying half-ton payloads into space”.

Some speculate in social media comments it could be related to a Shahab-3 Medium-range ballistic missile

South Korea’s space fund to invest $6.1 million in Space Solution
https://www.chosun.com/english/2023/12/ … 2VMJANWV4/
    Space Solution, a South Korean space and satellite components manufacturer, received the first investment from a government-backed space fund.
    Space Solution, which participated in the development of Korea’s first domestically built space launch vehicle Nuri, signed an investment deal worth 8 billion won ($6.1 million) with venture capital firm Medici Investment on Dec. 20, according to people with knowledge of the matter. Medici Investment manages the New Space Fund, a government-backed fund that aims to foster the domestic space industry.
    New Space Fund is the first space-related fund created by the government, following President Yoon Suk Yeol’s promise to support private space startups in February. The government-backed fund-of-funds was established in September with a total of 10 billion won, with the government investing 5 billion won and the private sector adding 5 billion won.
    Space Solution develops fluid control components and systems for launch vehicles and satellites. The company has been involved in the development of the thrust system for the third stage engines of Nuri and the propulsion system for the Multi-Purpose Satellite.
    The company also makes key components for launch vehicles, such as valves and propellant tanks that can withstand cryogenic temperatures of minus 200 degrees Celsius.
    “In the space industry, verifying component performance through actual launches is of utmost importance,” said Park Seong-san, a Medici Investment advisor who led the investment. “Space Solution has proven its technology through multiple projects and is well positioned to enter the space industry in the future.”
