IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tehran, Feb 9, IRNA -- For the second consecutive day, Navid satellite sent to stations the latest photos it has taken from Earth, project manager of Navid Satellite project, Hossein Bolandi said.

'Navid satellite took pictures from Hormuz Strait and also from different parts of the Islamic Republic of Iran,' Bolandi added.

He pointed out that Navid Satellite had a good performance in the seventh day of its mission in space and all its systems and subsystems are functioning well.

'Navid orbits 16 times around the Earth every 24 hours and it passes six times from above Iran,' Bolandi added.

The life span of the satellite is predicted to be two months, but it seems that the satellite will function more than two months.

'Iranian experts managed to successfully launch third domestically-built satellite into space which is a great achievement for the Islamic Republic of Iran,' he added.
