Iran plans to send monkey into space

Thursday June 16, 2011 07:50:45 PM, IANS

London: Iran plans to send a live monkey into space, a media report said Thursday.

The space capsule designed to carry a live monkey was unveiled by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in February.

"The Kavoshgar-5 rocket will be launched during the month of Mordad (July 23 to August 23) with a 285-kg capsule carrying a monkey to an altitude of 120 km," the Daily Mail quoted Hamid Fazeli, head of Iran's Space Organisation, as saying.

Fazeli announced the plans at the launch of the Rassad-1 satellite to produce detailed maps of the earth. It was put into orbit about 260 km above the Earth Wednesday.

In 2010, Iran sent a rat, turtles and worms into space aboard its Kavoshgar-3 rocket.
