Mehr News Agency - Launching Zafar with Simorgh satellite carrier

TEHRAN, Feb. 10 (MNA) – Iran on Sunday attempted to put remote sensing satellite Zafar into orbit. The launch of Simorgh satellite carrier rocket was successful, but the satellite did not reach the initial acceleration which is necessary to place itself in the orbit. ICT minister said another copy of Zafar would be sent into space in June.
