Monkey Gets Launched into Space!
Oct 14, 2013 -- TEHRAN, IRAN – An Iranian newspaper is reporting that the Islamic Republic plans to send another monkey into space within a month. A report Sunday in the conservative daily Jomhuri Eslami quotes the deputy head of Iran's space agency, Hamid Fazeli, as saying the planned launch is part of the country's plans to send a human to space in 2018. Earlier this year, Iran claimed it launched a monkey out of the Earth's atmosphere and successfully had it return. Check out the video footage from the mission.
