Iran to Launch Earth Observation Satellites Soon

Iran plans to launch four new satellites with domestically-designed carriers into the space in the near future, the deputy director of Iranian Space Agency (ISA) says. Zafar is a monitoring satellite, which will be sent into a geostationary orbit that is a circular orbit around 36,000 kilometers (22,320 miles) above the Earth’s equator.
