Iran To Send Animals Into Space

Iran plans to send exploratory rockets into space with live animals on board, paving the way for manned space flights, a space research official said on Tuesday.

Mohammad Ebrahimi, deputy head of Iran's Aerospace Research Institute, said Iran plans to send Kavoshgar (Explorer) 3 and 4 rockets into space in the near future.

The Kavoshgar 2 was successfully launched on Wednesday. The rocket consisted of a carrier, space-lab and restoration system.

Ebrahimi said the rocket analyzed air pressure and wind speed, and conducted astronomical tests at altitudes of 50 to 200 km.

The Kavoshgar 2 is a two-stage solid fuel rocket capable of carrying a small payload and reentering the lower atmosphere with a high degree of accuracy. Iran insists that its space program has no military goals.

Perhaps they could start with Pelosi and Reid.

We must reconcile ourselves the fact Iran's transport system is more 'Earth Friendly' than ours.

Sorry, AC, but amadamnednutjob would never qualify as a test chimp, he’d never reach the minimum IQ or height requirements for space bound simians.

This gives me an idea. All those terrorist at Guantanamo should be shot into space. I don’t care what happens after that...

They should send some of their top Ayatollahs and Mullahs on the early rides into space..... c’mon guys, prove your faith in Allah!! If he really thinks you are holy men you will be protected.... otherwise, well, let’s just say you won’t be in any condition for jihad by the end of your ride.

I’m not sure how much longer it has, but it will be sad to see the shuttle go into retirement. I still can’t believe we are going to rely on the Russians to take us into space. Does anyone know if/when the shuttle’s replacement is scheduled to enter service?
