Second monkey sent into space

Tehran, Dec 14, IRNA – Iranian scientists and experts have successfully launched a research rocket, sending second monkey into space Saturday morning.

The rocket which was launched on the first day of the national Research Week, carried Iran’s second space monkey, Fargam, and safely returned to the Earth after 15 minutes.



The liquid-fueled rocket was sent to 120 km high into the space to help develop Iran’s space research works providing Iranian scientists with the necessary information which would enrich their space technology knowhow.



During the 15-minute mission, the Iranian scientists have successfully measured signals coming from the rocket including its gas combination and vital signs of the space monkey.



Iran’s first rocket carrying a monkey into space was launched on January 28, 2013.
