Iran's First Sub-Orbital Astronaut


How it started

12:37 AM - 24 Jan 2021


Iran's space agency (ISA) chief Morteza Barari (@barari_ir) said that the manned space capsule developed by Iran Aerospace Research Institute (ARI) will be delivered to ISA by February 2021 and would be ready for sub-orbital launch by June.

How it’s going

5:43 PM - 24 Jan 2021


And before India and Europe.

I don't want to say "oh shame, in several decades of space history we still haven't done it in Europe", but still, it hurts

Ya Allah, put your mercy on that poor soul.... aameen.

God-fearing Persian hero lead the Islamic World in scientific achievements for a reason!


I am ready to be the first Iranian in space: Ahmadinejad

TEHRAN, Feb. 4, 2013 (MNA) – Iran's president said on the sidelines of a visit to the exhibition of space achievements and said; “sending living things to space is the result of Iranian efforts and dedication of thousands of Iranian professional scientists.”

Ahmadinejad remembered martyr Tehrani Moghadam and said; “I am ready to be the first human to be sent to space by Iranian scientists,” and continued that devil enemy are worried about the progress of the Iranian nation in all scientific fields and it leave no more room for their predatory tactics to loot Iranian resources.

Ahmadinejad asserted that “ launching Zohreh satellite, to be deployed in 36,000Km orbit, and Simorgh (Phoenix) , to be deployed in 700Km orbit, takes time, since tests should be carried out; Iranian young scientists strictly follow their job.”

He called Iranian experts for a consideration of sabotage by the enemies, and that “we should admit that some [powers] do not tolerate Iranian greatness and growth. Iranians has incited devils’ hatred by Iranian idealism, perfectionism, and being human.”

The 4 milestones leading to the orbital manned flight

The Iranian suborbital flight is not an extravagant project on the contrary, but a small step in preparation for the long term manned space endeavour.


The manned sub-orbital launch of the Iranian E1 capsule by the Safir-1D test vehicle will be the 3rd among 4 major milestones necessary before the final orbital manned flight could be attempted by 2024.

Each are incrementally more complex in preparation for the orbital flight.

✔ • Air Drop Tests: to validate the overall aerodynamics of the capsule in free fall, test the parachutes opening sequence made of 2 drogue chutes then the main parachute, plus the back-up set of parachutes; test the g-load and resistance of the all structures upon impact with the ground, especially the impact attenuation seat and its passenger

✔ • Pad Abort Test: launch abort escape system from the ground level, its separation from the capsule, opening sequence of the parachutes

• Suborbital Test Vehicle: to test a spacecraft separation from the carrier rocket, the life support system providing oxygen and controlling the humidity, CO2 level, pressure and temperature inside the capsule, an the ablative heat shield, coordination of the Search And Rescue Team

• First unmanned orbital flight: with an added orbital injection by the Sarir-1C launch vehicle of the spacecraft (F1: Fazanavard-1), and its controlled de-orbiting, tracking telemetry and control over an entire earth orbit, Search And Rescue Team over land with choppers and vessels covering the Persian Gulf and the Indian Ocean

1. The 4 main milestones incrementally more complex in preparation for the orbital manned flight.

Expect the public disclosure probably during the Bahman 22 celebration week (11th February 2021), of pictures and videos related to the Step 1 (Air Drop Tests) and 2 (Pad Abort Test) already completed in secrecy last year.

Remember, the first suborbital test launch of the Qased space launcher was conducted in secrecy on 19th April 2019, one year before the official 22th April 2020 launch that placed the Nour-1 satellite into LEO.

As previously accessed, the official confirmation from Iranian media that 2 suborbital flights will be conducted by June 2021!

۱۵ بهمن ۱۳۹۹،‏ ۶:۰۵

To consolidate the space achievements in LEO, it is expected that by the end of the Rouhani government, we will conduct 6 orbital launches (in the 500 km orbit) and 2 sub-orbital launches.

Iran Aerospace Research Institute chief Omi: Plan to send an astronaut into space has been delayed for 6 years “since the project was halted for years. The project was restarted last year.”
The launch was planned for 2025, been rescheduled for 2031.

Iran Aerospace Research Institute chief: “In past 7 months, ARI built space capsule Kavoshgar-9. It will be tested in Fajr Decade [ends on Feb10]… It is similar to capsule US used in 1959 in sub-orbital crewed spaceflight.”
Specs: 500kg, 2m length, internal volume 125*80cm.

It is 75% size of the final manned-rated capsule.

"According to international standards for sending humans into space, at least 5 successful launches must be made.

We will have a dummy in it, and after 5 successful tests, we will prepare the main capsule with a length of 2 meters and a diameter of 1.5 meters for human launch.

Iran Aerospace Research Institute chief: [Government] has invested 20 billion IRR ($82k) in Kavoshgar-9, only covering a part of 66 billion IRR ($272k) spent on the project.
The internal volume of the capsules will be increased to 2*1.5 m after tests for the crewed flight.

Kavoshgar-9 to be launched before 21 March 2021

Possibility of launching Iran's biological capsule by the end of the [Persian calendar year]

Taybi Rahni, Research Advisor to the Director of the Aerospace Research Institute of the Ministry of Science: As soon as the exact time of launching the biological capsule will be announced, we hope that we will be able to take effective action in launching the capsule by the end of March 2021 [Persian calendar year].

2. Kavoshgar-9 in preparation for Iran's ultimate goal: a first orbital manned mission.

Meanwhile harsh landing back on earth for ISRO, with a reality check in the new era of all-pandemics subtropical climate earth.

Major upset as the original plan was not even realistic to begin with.

Indian astronaut will not be sent to space when the country celebrates its 75th year of Independence in 2022!

Beware Team Bharat, team North Korea-Iran, Turkey, and now even Myanmar will all claim this most coveted 4th place as a manned spacefaring power!

Remember the The Tortoise and the Hare fable?

Gaganyaan manned mission not before 2023: Minister

Surendra Singh / TNN / Feb 17, 2021, 02:07 IST

NEW DELHI: The Gaganyaan manned mission, hit by the pandemic-triggered restrictions, has been further delayed and India’s maiden human spaceflight launch is not likely before 2023. “First unmanned mission is planned in December 2021.

Second unmanned flight is planned in 2022-23, followed by human spaceflight demonstration,” Union minister of state for space Jitendra Singh told the Lok Sabha in a written reply recently. Isro chairman K Sivan told TOI that a “human-rated GSLV MkIII rocket with a modified top portion involving provision for a crew module and a crew escape system is being readied for the first unmanned mission in December and a humanoid to be sent on it will be ready by October”.

http://web.archive.org/web/20210218192429/https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/india/gaganyaan-manned-mission-not-before-2023-minister/articleshow/81013233.cms

If ISRO can't keep its target goal of 2022 for a manned spaceflight due to the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, then it will only be able to launch fireworks for the next 2 decades!

Because during the past year, COVID-19 was only a mild massage compared to the incoming tsunami of B117 et al strains forecasted for March 2021!

5 FEb 2021

TWO DIFFERENT COVID19 PANDEMICS—Many think with cases dropping that pandemic is nearly over. But truth is, there are now 2 different #SARSCoV2 pandemics diverging—old strain is waning, while the more contagious #B117 strain is dominating. We will be soon slammed very hard.

3. Here is what is going to happen... currently R is ~0.9 in many places, but with the more infectious #B117, the R will jump 50% approximately. And it is inevitable (all CDC and Danish models say this) that B117 will take over as the reigning dominant variant soon... · Feb 5, 2021

Iran should be brave and go for it. This is Iran's chance to take the well-deserved lead on india when it comes to human flight and space program

Although, I dont know why Iran hasn't successfully tested a GEO SLV yet.

India sometimes after 2024, as for Iran no earlier than 2024!🎲🔮🥠


First biocapsule that will be manned by a robot will be transferred in May/June this year for launch preparations.

Plan is to have five successful unmanned tests until 2025/2026 to qualify it for human spaceflight.

Kavoshgar-9 should be 1.25 meter in diameter, or 3/4 scale model.

Kavoshgar-10 should be full size, with 2 meters in diameter.

This means with 5 successful unmanned tests, from Kavoshgar-10 to Kavoshgar-14 the manned mission will start with Kavoshgar-15 at the earliest!
