|Iran capable of launching nano-satellites: official||
TEHRAN - Iran has the capability to launch into space nano-satellites, weighing below 10 kilograms, ISNA quoted Iran Space Agency (ISA) Director Hamid Fazeli as saying.
Some of Asian countries and an Austrian university have announced readiness to set their satellites into orbit using Iranian space shuttles, he said.
Iran has already sent three satellites into space. On February 3, the country successfully launched its third domestically manufactured satellite, named the Navid (Promise), into orbit. The Safir one satellite carrier rocket was used to launch the Navid research satellite.
Fazeli said that Iran is among a handful of countries in the world which are capable of developing satellite-related technologies.
