Space Launch: Kavoshgar-4

Iran says it launched new rocket and capsule into orbit Iran announced today (March 17) that it has launched a new rocket and space capsule designed to carry a monkey into orbit, according to the country's state-run news agency. According to Iran's official Islamic Republic News Agency, the country launched the capsule on a Kavoshgar-4 ("Explorer" in Farsi) rocket Tuesday (March 15). The IRNA report stated that "data and images" from the capsule were expected to be sent from orbit 120 kilometers (75 miles) above the Earth, Reuters reported. The launch marks a major step forward for Iran's fledgling space program, and a worrying sign for foreign nations fearing that Iran's space goals are aimed at developing space weapons. Although the new space capsule is designed to carry living creatures, there were no animals onboard this test launch, IRNA and other news agencies reported >>>

Bogus Graphics

This is so pitiful, a short video of cheap computer graphics. In the video the Rocket is wabbling all over the place; there is no way in JAHANAM the rocket could hold together with that kind of instability. LOL

LOL, IRI building space

by vildemose on

LOL, IRI building space weapons??? This is another ludicrous fearmongering by the neocons. Iran can't even build a its own nuclear plants or refinaries, let alone space weapons, which have not been even built by the US, yet.


Ahmaghinejad is going to be IRI astronaut?

by choghok on

So they have designed this rocket speciall for sending Ahmaghinejad up? It must be the only way for him to get away with the mess he has done in Iran.

Those Monkeys ghedas in Iran can't manage the country/economy

by amirparvizforsecularmonarchy on

Now they are wasting all the money we have left to send the hidden emam to the moon... to do what we don't know, for what benefit we are left speechless.  Give me a break, 50% of Iran is living in dire poverty as you send Iran to the stone age.

دولت انگلستان بهشون دستورداد که این کپسول حاوی باروت-زرنیخ-واجبی و نشادر را درست روز تولد رضا شاه هوا کنند که یادی هم از آن مرد شده باشد. میمون بدبخت را هم که دیدید، لباس حاجی فیروز تنش کرده اند. تمام موشک اینهارو با یک آچار پیچ گوشتی میشه واز کرد.  ما اینهارو کلاس پنج دبستان میساختیم و جز مزاحمت برای درو همسایه هیچ مصرف دیگری ندارد. صدای گوینده اخبار هم که دیگه واویلاست.  خدارو شکر کنید که هروز مجبور نیستید صدای این مردک را گوش کنید. اون فنر روی یقلابی غذا که شکل راداره هم فنر خودکار بیکه.  تو سبزه میدون مشت مشت میخریدیم. اون صدو بیست کیلومتر هم که میگن این موشک طی میکنه عمودی نیست. میذارنش روی یک تریلی و جاده قم را میگیره تا کیلومتر صدوبیست،  نهار را که خوردن و بعد از نماز، سر خر و کج میکنن و بر میگردن

But I will wait a bit before the truth in this news comes out. If they have been successful, then my congrats to the Iranian people.



Good animation

by mahmoudg on
