The Iranian Space Endeavor: Ambitions and Reality
by Parviz Tarikhi
For those who see the trend of progress and movement of the Iranian space endeavor from the outside, it can be difficult to understand what goes on behind the scenes.

However, for one who observes these events firsthand, they take on a very different meaning. In this book, the author brings new and different profiles of Iran's space
endeavor to light. Iran claims to be the ninth leading country in the world capable of manufacturing satellites and launching them, plans to land an astronaut on the Moon within a decade, and says its own president plans to be the first Iranian astronaut to travel into space. The author presents in this book that not all of these claims are quite as they seem.

In addition to technical explanations, the book also includes historical, legal, social and cultural aspects of Iran's space program as well. It is the author's goal to create a tangible feeling of Iran's space endeavor for the readers.
