Photos: Iran successfully launches monkey into space

Iran has successfully launched a rocket carrying a monkey into space, according to Iranian state media, in what Iranian officials call a “prelude to sending humans into space.”

The monkey was sent in an “indigenous bio-capsule” called Pishgam, which is Farsi for “Pioneer”. Pishgam reached an altitude of more than 75 miles and made a successful return.
