talent of Iranians.ST5 is testing new micro-spacecraft technologies and operations’ techniques.

The three spacecraft will conduct science validation using measurements of the Earth’s magnetic

field collected by the miniature boom-mounted magnetometers on each. Initial contact with ST5

was made at 9:27 a.m. EST,as the spacecraft passed over the McMurdo Ground Station in Antarctica.

Art Azarbarzin, ST5 project manager at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Md.,

described next week’s planned activities for the spacecraft. “During the first day, we ensure the

three craft are correctly operating. During the next few days, we deploy and test the magnetometer

booms. Finally, we prepare them for the science demonstration and make any necessary orientation

adjustments,” Azarbarzin said. click here and read about his achievement from the BBC website.

To read about the news in English please click here. AzarBarzin has been born on June 13, 1956,

in Iran and when he was 16 moved to Chicago area, he studied BS in Electrical Engineering at the

University of Illinois and then MS in Aeronautical & Astronautical Engineering at University of Illinois
