Iran's space launch on Thursday failed to put its three payloads into orbit after the rocket was unable to reach the required speed, a defense ministry spokesman said in remarks carried on state television on Friday.

The attempted launch, which came as indirect U.S.-Iran talks take place in Austria to try to salvage a 2015 nuclear deal, drew criticism from the United States, Germany and France.

"For a payload to enter orbit, it needs to reach speeds above 7,600 (meters per second). We reached 7,350," the spokesman, Ahmad Hosseini, said in a documentary about the launch vehicle broadcast on state TV and posted online.


I appreciate scientific achievement, but Iran failing doesn't break my heart
didn't even realize they had a space program

Well, apparently they don't actually have one.

Well...



Where's Gortex? He usually has a good grasp of these things. I thought Iran did get one rocket high up but failed some years back.
Gortex!??


Meanwhile in North Korea....

If their space program is anything like their navy, one has to wonder if maybe they didn't inflate the rocket enough?

They've had about fifteen launches in the last decade or so, but not many have been successful. I think less than half. The had a successful launch last spring with their Qasad, a new design, but the last launch that was successful before that was five or six years ago with a Safir variant.

Edit to add: Actually, pretty sure the Qasad was back in 2020, not last spring.

Not only do they have their own space program, but also quite big ambitions. The failure to launch the satellite did not upset them at all. In the near future, it is expected to launch the "Kyaveshgar-3" and "Kyaveshgar-4" rockets into outer space with animals on board, and in the next 10 years - their own cosmonaut. (one name "Kyaveshgar-3" causes a smile)

Thankyou for the update! Does Iran have enough resources? They asked the U.S. to send them lots of cash to get their space and nuclear programs going, a few years ago.
