      Iran Successfully Sends Monkey into Space


      Iranian state television reported on Monday that the country successfully sent a monkey into space in what Tehran hailed as another step toward their goal of a manned space flight.

      According to the report, the monkey was sent up in a rocket and reached a height of 120 kilometres before safely returning to Earth. 

      Iran has ambitious goals for its aeronautics program and the regime's end goal is to send an astronaut into space.
