Iran on Tuesday test-fired the Kavoshgar 3 satellite carrier, sending its third explorer with living organisms onboard into space.
The Kavoshgar 3 (Explorer) rocket, carrying an experimental capsule, transfers telemetric data, live pictures and flight and environmental analysis data.
The Iranian Aerospace Organization (IAO) says live video transmission and the mini-environmental lab will enable further studies on the biological capsule carrying a rat, two turtles and worms as it leaves earth's atmosphere and enters space.
In February 2008, Iran became the 11th country to have acquired space-related technology by blasting Kavoshgar 1 into space.
The second Kavoshgar, which carried a space-lab and a restoration system, was launched in November 2008. The Kavoshgar 3 rocket is an updated version of the previous models.
Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi on Wednesday hailed the successful launch and insisted on the "peaceful" nature of Iran's space program.
"Iran will not tolerate any un-peaceful use [of space] by any country," General Vahid was quoted as saying by the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA).
Nah. According to our European intelligence over the past 6 years or so in the US Departments of State and Defense, Iran only has missiles that could reach Israel. They cain’t do nothin’ to us, ‘cuz we Baby Boomers are too smart and proud. ...’sides, we’re goin’ to have strong wimmin in charge.
Now they can hit the United States.
“a rat, two turtles and worms”
Ahmanutjob and the mullahs are in space now?
Not Yet. They still have to solve the propulsion probem. But if they launch from a ship then the answer is yes.
The Iranian Press.
Thank you Sonofstrangelove for the ping.
Be Afraid. Be very afraid. Unlike the Soviets they really think they are doing God's work by doing evil.
Well, the easiest method would to ship the bomb components in cargo containers. After it passed through customs, reassemble the parts at a downtown flophouse.
I thought ya’ mite wanna see this one,,,
Nut Job seems to be in the “Lookit’Me” mode...
That was one of the theories I had envisioned regarding Iran’s missiles.
They have a mouse, turtles and worms in their research rocket.

There are thousands of ships out there and we do not know what is on them. Read the Rumsfeld Commission report-1998
I guess you’ve read Joel Rosenberg’s - “Dead Heat”???

Where the hell is PETA when you need them???
BTW, has anyone sent this to FoxNews??? They seem to be the only network talking about the issue...
This would be a really good story for them to at least throw out there to the masses...
My thoughts exactly. Where are the protests from the left about the extra pollution and toxic gasses that are expelled in these launches? What about the extra holes in the ozone?
This is just another in the LONG list of things that a supposedly “ethic driven groups” neglect to make a peep about when performed by an anti-American nation.
Is it in Polar Orbit? If it is, it’s form targeting MRVS.
Orbital inclination is 55.5
