The president of the Iranian Space Agency (ISA) has said “Iran will join the earthquake prediction project using ionosphere satellites.”

The project would be a joint venture of the Asia Pacific Space Cooperation Organization (APSCO) 8 member states. The joint cooperation was approved by APSCO and is underway; the project will study components in the ionosphere layer in space by using satellites revolving around the earth; the layer components would catch seismic waves before an earthquake can occur, thus making its prediction a reality, Mehr news agency quoted Hamid Fazeli as saying.  Many countries have launched projects of this sort to facilitate prediction of possible earthquakes. “Iran will conduct part of the project individually and cooperate with APSCO members in some areas,” he said.
