These are quite similar to the Safir rockets that Iran has, at least in capabilities. This does not surprise me since Iran has been building up to
this point for a few years. I do know they killed a monkey a couple years ago while attempting this. But before the launch we are talking about they
sent the same vehicle up successfully, and it contained the setup for the monkey, without a monkey. Before that they were sending up some other types
of animals, but small ones from what I remember...Maybe insects before that. They are going to go for a manned mission soon I would think, maybe
within 5 years, if they still exist at that time.
