Satellite carrier, spacecraft design achievements of Iran’s Revolution

Tehran, Feb 3, IRNA - The director of Aerospace Research Institute pointed out that before the Islamic Revolution of Iran there was no space technology and emphasized that Iran now, in addition to space science, has managed to use space technology in designing satellite carrier and spacecraft.

Fathollah Ommi said on Sunday on the occasion of the National Space Technology Day said that 'the country's achievements in space technology have been great and we nearly have over 2,000 achievements in this area'.

Referring to the fact that the space has already been opened to us, he continued, 'Of the 10 launches we have done so far, we have been able to launch 8 voyagers into space, and these voyagers have carried living creatures and returned them alive to earth again.'

“The last time we were able to send two monkeys below the orbit. Space technology is said to be a new or advanced technology because its added value is high,' he noted.
