Iranian satellite fails in third stage

Wednesday 16 January 2019 | 10:29 CET | News
Iran's attempt to launch a satellite on a long-range ballistic missile has ended in failure, Telecoms Minister Mohammad Javad Azari-Jahromi has announced, according to The Express. Azari-Jahromi said that the satellite, named Payam, failed in the third stage of the launch because it did not reach adequate speed, according to a report on the ministry's website. It was meant to be used for imaging and communications and had four cameras, and should have stayed at an altitude of 300 miles for approximately three years.
