    Hi all
    Today morning Iran State TV was show the live coverage of the test
    launching of the Iranian Space launcher. it's name is "SAFIR"means
    according to this coverage the rocket launch from SEMNAN desert in
    center of Iran via portable launch pad. I cant find any details about
    the orbit or height level of this rocket.
    but it seems to one stage launcher
    Here you can see the movie of it's launch that recorded for IRINN.
    Also the official announced today that Iran is going to launch first
    homemade satellite"ÍMID"that means Hope to space in the March of 2009.
