Iran space launch failed to put payload into orbit – defense ministry — RT World News
A rocket launched by Iran on Thursday has ended with the three payloads aboard failing to attain orbit, as the launch itself was not speedy enough to hit the required altitude.
The announcement was made by a spokesperson for the country’s Defense Ministry in a documentary about the launch, which aired on state television on Friday.
“For a payload to enter orbit, it needs to reach speeds above 7,600 (metres per second). We reached 7,350,” the spokesperson said.
