Iran's first domestically-built research satellite has successfully orbited the earth 23 times since it was lofted into space.
On Tuesday, Iran placed its Omid (meaning Hope in Persian) satellite into orbit via the Iranian-produced satellite carrier Safir 2, ushering in an era of independence in its space program in commemoration of the Islamic Revolution's 30th anniversary.

Equipped with two frequency bands and eight antennae, Omid has an elliptical orbit with a minimum of 250 kilometers and a maximum of 400.

"During the orbit of the Omid satellite, it passed over Iran three times and was sighted by ground stations. Information was exchanged," Iranian aerospace official Alireza Zarifian Yeganeh reported Wednesday in letter, a copy of which was obtained by Press TV.

The lightweight telecommunications satellite is equipped with remote sensing, satellite telemetry and geographic information system technology as well as remote and ground station data processing.

Omid is a research satellite that has been designed for gathering information and testing equipment. After orbiting for one to three months, Omid will return to earth with data that will help Iranian experts send an operational satellite into space.

Omid is the third Iranian-made satellite to be sent into space. Russia launched Iran's first satellite in 2005. Three years later, another satellite, which had been jointly designed by Iran, China and Thailand, was also sent into orbit.

To date, only eight countries have launched domestically-made satellites into orbit. Tehran also plans to send its first astronaut into space by 2021.

The Iranian aerospace achievement comes as the country has been subject to sanctions for nearly 30 years. The sanctions have cut Iran's access to many goods, including spare parts for passenger planes and even various medicines.

Russia tips hat to Iranian scientists
Fri, 06 Feb 2009 16:56:54 GMT


The rocket was launched late Monday night or early Tuesday morning. The orbital launching raised concerns in the US.
A Russian official says a satellite launch by Iranian technology suggests that the country's missiles "can reach any point on the globe".

On Tuesday, Iran fired its Omid (Hope) satellite into orbit by a homemade satellite carrier coinciding with celebrations of the 30th anniversary of the Islamic Revolution.

The orbital launch raised concerns in the US, France, Israel and Britain about the potential ability Tehran has in launching long-range missiles halfway around the globe.

"I take my hat off to Iranian scientists," Vitali Lapota, manager of the RKK Energuia space construction company, said Thursday.

"They have shown their missiles can reach any point on the globe," the Russia space official was quoted as saying by the Interfax news agency.

Iran says its scientific achievements serve no military purpose.

On Friday, Iranian envoy to Moscow Mahmoud-Reza Sajadi denied that the country can strike targets around the globe.

"Any assessments to this effect (the range of Iranian missiles) are untrue. Our missiles have a very limited range," RIA Novosti quoted him as saying.

Iran says its missiles will only be used for defensive measures should it come under attack.

The country possesses medium- and long-range missiles, such as the advanced Shahab-3 and the Sejjil missiles boasting of a minimum range of 1,250 miles (2000 kilometers).

The Iranian government has invested in and developed such defensive programs ever since Israel officially threatened to militarily take out Iran's nuclear infrastructure.

A small question: If their rockets can reach outside the world, why cant they reach anywhere on the face of the earth?

It says right there in the article bro:

^Thats what I was wondering about. Why do tey still say our missiles can only reach like 2000 or whatever miles, why dont they just say we can hit any nation in the world.

Sending a multiple stage rocket does not mean having an ICBM right away. It is indeed a step closer to ICBM (Inter Continental Ballistic Missile) but will require some modifications. Even if they have got the capability - they won't do it now. I think Iranian officials have denied West's reports that Iran is going for ICBM.

You have to keep USA's missile shield at Europe in mind too.

A satellite launch vehicle, regardless of whether it can put a satellite in orbit will have a limited reach if it continuously flies through the atmosphere. However, if you make it put an explosive warhead in orbit, make it leave orbit at a certain point and then lead it to a specific target, you can hit any point you wish. However for great precision I would have several satellites already in orbit, also the warhead needs to build of material that would survive the extreme heat when coming back into the main part of the atmosphere.
