An Iranian space official says brining the space into people`s daily lives is an important priority for Iran`s National Space Agency.
“Space will become part of people`s lives in the future; even now it is present in their daily lives, and the National Space Administration [of Iran] intends to bring the space into people`s life and society,” said Manouchehr Manteqi, the chief of Iran`s National Space Administration, about the country’s priorities in second national 10-year spatial program.
“Cellphone is one of the most obvious cases of using space-related matters in the society, and all these communications are possible thanks to satellites. So it`s not strange to bring the subject of space into people`s daily lives,” he added, as reported by Mehr, and translated by IFP.
According to Manteqi, people can also see the usage of satellites and space-related matters in banking services, television channels, and meteorology, among others.
