Iran to send another monkey into space: Report

Tehran: An Iranian newspaper is reporting that the Islamic Republic plans to send another monkey into space within a month.

A report today 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.
Fazeli was quoted in today`s article as saying animals with a similar weight as monkeys are under consideration as future space test subjects. In September, Iran suggested it may start launching Persian cats into space.
