Flying Saucer, Made in Iran?
The unmanned spaceship, called the Zohal or Saturn in English, is designed for ''aerial imaging'' but can be used for ''various missions''.
The hardline Fars news agency illustrated its story with a photo of a flying saucer, similar to one appearing in a 1950s Hollywood B-movie, hovering over an unidentified wooded landscape.
The reports gave no indication of the spaceship’s size. But they indicated it was small by claiming, somewhat bizarrely, that it can also fly indoors.
“Easy transportation and launch and flying, making less noise, are some of the advantages of the device,” the Daily Mail quoted ISNA, Iran’s students’ news agency, as saying
“The device belonging to the new generation of vertical flyers is designed for aerial photography.
“It is equipped with autopilot, image stabiliser and GPS and has a separate system for aerial recording with full HD quality!”
The flying saucer was said to have been unveiled at an exhibition of ''strategic technologies'' attended by Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
