Iran anticipates lifting off a satellite amid alarms over the manufacturing of Ballistic Missile

Tehran is displaying what the Islamic Republic’s followers’ term as “accomplishments” as a way of making sure that its “liberation and evolution” as the 41st Islamic revolution anniversary approaches on February 11. 

During the days in advance of the anniversary, the government television screen shows imageries of dams’ installation, tarmacking of dirt highways, and even building telecommunication posts. 

During the latest days, government administrators used to discuss the forthcoming lift-off of Zafar, (which means ‘Victory’) satellite and make many controversies concerning the lift-off that not even a single person had the idea of the day it will launch. The Zafar satellite weighs 113 Kg satellite, and launch experts will place it into orbit that is approximately 530 Kilometers tall directly above the Earth. 

Administrators present at the Iranian Ministry of Information Technology and Communications (ITC) state that Zafar satellite carried with it 80 Iranian experts, who took three years to construct the satellite. It will lift off into space together with a Simorgh satellite shipper rocket. Simorgh is the name used in a mythological tale of a bird in the Persian epic Shahnameh or the Book of Kings. 

The Space Operation of Iran space program takes us back to a few years earlier before the 1979 Islamic revolt. It substituted a millennia-old kingdom with a fundamentalist from anti-U.S. ecclesiastical administration. 

Strategies prepared in 1977 were to go through completion after five years, that is, 1982, for the lift-off of a satellite by the name Zohreh, which means ‘Venus. The satellite was to enhance the analysis of the National Iranian Radio Television (NIRT). 

Just like any other transformation and scientific advancement operations, the members of the clergy, who ruled over Iran and terminated the space of that state and nuclear operations, among many other striving strategies, placed the proposal on the back burner for an indefinite period.

The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) informed Iran in 1982 that it would not have the ability to locate the slot of orbit allotted to it if it had no satellite for take-off or was not able to purchase or lease an old one to place it in orbit. Seemingly, Iran lacked strategies to place a satellite in orbit, and that matter died. 

Iran was not in the position to take action as well since some of its experts went out of the nation, imprisoned or executed for political causes. The only resolution for Tehran was to rent Old Russian satellites and reserve its slits on the orbit in an odd way. However, this cost Tehran a specific $20 million.
