Mideast Iran Space Monkey
This photo released on Saturday, Dec. 14, 2013 by the Iranian Students New Agency, ISNA, claims to show a launch of the rocket dubbed Pajohesh, or Research in Farsi, in an undisclosed location in Iran. Iran said Saturday it has successfully sent a monkey into space for a second time, part of an ambitious program aimed at manned space flight. Iran's state TV said that the launch of the rocket was Iran's first use of liquid fuel. It said the monkey, named Fargam or Auspicious, was returned to earth safely.
