Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Aerospace Force’s Space Division Brigadier General Ali Jafarabadi said the IRGC has plans to launch satellites into a geosynchronous equatorial orbit (GEO) 36,000 kilometers above the Earth.
NASA satellites have provided more data than ever before on what has been happening to Antarctica and Greenland's ice over the past 16 years with dire, if not entirely unexpected, findings. Both polar ice sheets are losing billions of tons of ice every year and adding to sea-level rise.
Iran's Minister of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) Mohammad Javad Azari Jahromi said Sunday that two newly built satellites have passed prelaunch tests and will be transported to the nation’s space center for launch.
A flagship observatory that will map the heavens in spectacular detail and search the skies for asteroids on a collision course with Earth faces serious disruption from a new wave of satellites bound for space.
An Indian rocket on Monday placed domestic and foreign satellites in three different orbits on a single flight, a first for the nation and a low-cost option that could burnish its reputation for pioneering affordable options in space.
A SpaceX rocket delivered 10 satellites to low-Earth orbit on Friday, completing a two-year campaign by Iridium Communications Inc. to replace its original fleet with a new generation of mobile communication technology and added global aircraft tracking capability.
