Director of Iran Space Agency Hamid Fazeli told IRNA on Saturday that using the upgraded Safir satellite carrier rocket to launch the Navid (Promise) research satellite into orbit was a great scientific achievement for the Islamic Republic.


He said that the Safir B1 rocket enjoys more propulsion power compared to its predecessor, the Safir A1, and could put into orbit the Navid satellite which weighs twice as heavy as previous domestically manufactured satellites.
