`Iran capable of launching nano-satellites`
Tehran: Iran has the capability to launch nano-satellites weighing below 10 kg into space, according to the Iran Space Agency (ISA) director Hamid Fazeli.
Some of Asian countries and an Austrian university have announced readiness to set their satellites into orbit using Iranian space shuttles, Xinhua quoted Fazeli as saying.
He said Iran is among a handful of countries in the world that are capable of developing satellite-related technologies.
In February, Iran launched an observation satellite into orbit. The spacecraft, named Navid (Herald), weighed 50 kg and could take pictures in low attitudes of about 250 km to 375 km from the earth.
