Iran has sent a second live monkey into space and safely returned him to Earth, the country's state-run news agency reports.
Fargam the space monkey rode a Pajonesh rocket 75 miles up into space before his capsule safely detached and parachuted back to the ground, Iranian state TV said.
The report, which showed the rocket blasting off and then showed the monkey, strapped snugly into a seat, staring at people clapping to celebrate its safe return, added that the launch was Iran's first use of liquid fuel.
If we can all just keep it to constructive things and leave the ICBM aspect out of what is otherwise a great thing!

I hacked into Iran's space program and got their design plans, so it seems legit.
But what I have to ask is, why? Why send a monkey into space? What is the reasoning behind it. Sending a rocket into space with sensors, meters, gauges would achieve the same thing, in my humble opinion.
