Space Program of Iran 10 March, 2020

The fourth attempt of the rocket, which Iran tried to send into space in February, also failed. This situation signals that Iran will continue to try. It is also essential to understand that going out into space has consequences beyond what is visible.

On 9 February 2020, Iran launched a Simurg-type rocket, carrying the satellite named Zafer-1 from the Imam Khomeini Space Centre, which located in the north of the country. The rocket, whose motors of the first two stages worked properly, could not reach enough speed to climb the planned trajectory and crashed according to the official statement made later.
