Iran not giving up on plan to send a monkey to space

iran monkey to spaceIran will try again to send a live monkey into space after a previous attempt failed in 2011, media reports said on Tuesday quoting the space chief, who gave a launch date of before mid-February.

“The final tests for launching the capsule, carrying a monkey, have been completed,” Iran’s Space Organisation chief Hamid Fazeli said in remarks reported by the Mehr news agency.

Fazeli said the launch would take place during a 10-day period starting on 31 January, which marks the 34th anniversary of the 1979 Islamic revolution, the state television website reported.

Iran has already sent small animals into space – a rat, turtles and worms – but its previous attempt to send a live monkey into space failed in 2011, which was announced without explanation.

Fazeli said the monkey project would help Iran “implement the preparations of sending a man into space”, which officials say is scheduled for 2020.

The previous project envisaged launching a capsule with life support using the Kavoshgar-5 rocket to an altitude of 120km for a 20-minute sub-orbital flight.

Iran says it has successfully launched three satellites – Omid in February 2009, Rassad in June 2011 and Navid in February 2012.

But it postponed, without explanation, the planned launch in May of another satellite called Fajr.

Iran’s space programme deeply unsettles Western nations, which fear it could be used to develop ballistic missiles capable of carrying nuclear warheads they suspect are being developed in secret.

Tehran has repeatedly denied that its nuclear and scientific programmes mask military ambitions.

    The monkey does look Iranian in this picture…

    • patriotss

      are you still feeding the animals in the Iranian zoo

      • Hannibal

        I gladly pass the job to you… When people follow the wrong even in a democracy people transform themselves into monkeys…

        Let me give you an example… I have seen videos of Iranian kids having their hands crushed by a rolling car because they stole a loaf of bread. If a kid is hungry it is the social structure’s (in this case the ISLAMIC (emphasis here) republic of Iran) duty to provide, yet it failed the kid. Then they go ahead and follow ISLAMIC Sharia and they push the kid more into poverty because a crushed hand can’t function to put food at the table. Even IF the will of the people is to apply this rule democratically it is still wrong. That makes such people lower than monkeys because monkeys have no such ability to think yet humans do yet they are oblivious to the truth. Therefore I resign my job because I cannot feed such monkeys… Let them starve. ;)

          Seeing though you are so concerned about kids around the world, Maybe you should send a letter to the Vatican and all the fake and full of S@@t so called holy men.The amount of money they generate a year could put a stop to starvation around the world. I don’t see you criticising them. Would it be because you are a Racist. Be a man and Just come out and say it Hannibal, You don’t like Muslims.

          • Hannibal

            So let me get this straight if I change my religion to Islam would that be a change in race?
            Islam is a religion NOT a race… If I criticize Islam it does not make me a racist… However you and Irani criticize Arabs THAT is racism. I often criticize Christian clergy for interfering in politics. Religion and state should be separate. ONLY things that we share in common should be in the government. Yes my friend I have the right to dislike Islam it does not make me a racist. It makes me free. You can criticize any other religion and we can discuss THAT my friend is called dialogue. Yes I see my son in that boy. It is a shame that instead of standing by me and saying I am right in defending the innocent you attack me as if I am the one driving the car. You are a bunch of hypocrites and vipers hiding under the rocks slithering and conniving because you are brain washed. I dare to criticize my religion and my clergy and my church and all what the crusaders did in the middle east. I call this justice. But you moslems hide behind your fingers and say God told us to do this or that. All what GOD did is give you a brain. When you see wrong FIX IT!!! and the wrong is in the acts. As of the money of the vatican you are right. Jesus was poor… Jesus was loving… al-masiixou minhom barra2.

            And, He was Jewish. ;-)

          • FreetheME

            Careful 5th, you might start a new religion. :-)

        • Prophettttt

          This video is full of selected verses that are not interpreted correctly,or as intended, by some Muslims.Many scholars,shia and sunnis have a more through interpretation of “cutting” a thief’s hand,than literary cutting it.
          It is obvious that this video is designed ,part of a campaign ,to make Islam and Muslims look bad. There is nothing on earth that would justify what this young boy had to go through,or what these ladies had to endure. No religion on earth justifies that,and definitely not The Islam that the greatest majority know and practice.

          You know that this is a very Wahabi interpretation of the Koran,and the sharia law.Not that I Support applying sharia law in any country, but we have to be objective and put things in the right contest.These Wahhabi are twisted minded. Even the father of Muhamad Abudulwahab,the founder of this school, had disowned his son and denounced him as twisted minded.

          Looking at this video, I could easily tell that it was mostly taped in Afghanistan,and those animals are Taliban who follow the wahabi doctrine,and those people do not represent the main stream Islam followed by the majority of Sunnis and shia Muslims.
          You know that Honor killing is not a “Muslim behavior,nor is it a law,but rather a pre Islamic stupid tradition practiced by Arabs and non Arabs. unfortunately Islamic practices(not laws) were influenced by pre Islamic Arab tradition as much Arabs were affected by Islam, many traditions and habits carried on in these societies (Arab, Indian, Pakistanis and so on) after Islam and it is not fair to labeled it as a Muslim law.

          You always say that you have good friends who are Muslims ; Have you asked them if they agree or if they believe that these are sharia laws before you post these propaganda video?You can dislike any religion you want,and you can criticize as much as you want, but to be taken seriously as a debater, you need to show more impartiality and more objectivity.Everyone can pick and choose verses,and selected videos from around the world in order to denounce an other group ,but is that considered honest debate? I think not. How many church around the world,and especially in the states, have twisted views of Christianity and in reality, do not really represent Christianity? Would it be fair for some one to use their twisted views and practices,as evidence of Bad christian behavior or teaching? I think not.

          • 5thDrawer

            One point Prophet(are we up to 5 yet?;-)ttttt …. Most Christians in free-speech secular-law countries are not afraid to call out the stupid or twisted Christian idiots and offshoots of ‘the faith’ – especially if they try to harm those who don’t fit their warped views. Even to their faces – or by being pasted up in the press. (the law covers both sides on matters of dispute in truth or personal attack)
            On the other hand … and perhaps this is what Hannibal rails most against … where is the HUGE outcry from all your ‘right thinking’ Muslims when Talibanis and Al Shabobs are running around enforcing their thoughts and every-day suffering on ‘the people’?
            Where is a Muslim politician who stands up and says: ‘That doesn’t work. Time to re-write that or eliminate it from ‘the law’.’ ? (Oh there are probably some Imams who lost their heads over trying … but you know what I mean.)
            I am afraid the ‘East VS West’ thing simply stops anyone around the Med from agreeing with an updated God concept – even though vigorous debate happens in the western countries (who hope for peace) in trying to understand why anyone would want or enjoy Sharia in the first place. ;-)

          • Hannibal

            Well put… If you continue my friend I shall appoint you my lawyer… he he

          • Prophettttt

            You’re applying “in free-speech secular-law countries” to a country that can’t accept any secular law ,but instead keep digging into sectarianism. It’s all about laws.If you can’t support secular laws,electoral as a start, then your argument makes no sense. Put secular laws in place and apply them. Separation of sates and religion is a key to western countries successes with secularism.A secularism that still respect people’s right to believe or not to believe.This morning,I heard our respected Mufti saying That He won’t talk to a former prime minister unless He Asks for “Tawebee”. I’m not defending that Former PM, but I’m criticizing the influence Religious leaders Impose on people.
            We can’t compare apples to oranges.Either we want apples,and live with taste of apples, or Orange and its taste.You can’t compare what goes on in a lawless country to what goes on in a country built and run by secular laws.

          • 5thDrawer

            I understand your point Prophet, for sure.
            Hmmm … maybe something about translation too ….
            A Muslim friend of mine was bragging that he had the entire Koran on DVD.
            Being interested, I asked him to burn me a copy…
            WELL, talk about getting upset !!

            i am not at all afraid to call out the stupid or twisted atheist idiot and offshoot of atheist faith particularly when they try to harm those who do not fit their warped views. Even to their faces-or being passed up in the press

          • FreetheME

            I must say 5th, their are plenty of twisted Christian idiots in the world. And most congregate in the Vatican which Btw have harmed plenty of innocent people over the years. Further more, Not only do some of these mad so called Muslims like the Taliban and Al Shabaab run around enforcing their thoughts and every-day suffering on ‘the people, the Christian Church also does the same. And has been doing so for many Centuries. Lets not try and hide behind our finger.

          • JesusIsAllah

            i bet you meant the muslum church in saoudi arabia and iran namely the fatwa geniuses and the mullah peaceful einsteins, so peaceful that they will soon exterminate each other inshalJesus in the name of their respective godfather allat

          • 5thDrawer

            Was I hiding? Maybe only around the other side of a sand-dune when sun-bathing, as a finger doesn’t quite cover ….. ;-)
            But then, why not call out an idiot when you hear one, without trying to blame which race and creed he/she may have first? Likewise, praise a valid thought when it is made – no matter the language?

          • williamgel

            Be careful not to lump all Christians into the Catholic sect which is governed from the Vatican. The pope does not represent the majority of Christians – Greek Orthodox, Russian orthodox, Coptic, etc.

          • IraniAngel

            you know what would be better? if the west stops backing these terrorists networks

          • williamgel

            well said

          • Hannibal

            Every word you said I agree with… That is why you haven’t understood my message… Christianity evolved albeit some idiot fanatics still exist they will be crushed by secular governments. That does not mean those governments are atheist it is just that we say no to religion in governance. I am waiting for Moslems to do the same. I do not refer to the likes of you when I criticize. People can criticize Christianity and if they are right I will say it. I always criticized the crusades. I criticize the American Mid West for their Christian fanaticism and believe me there are the likes of wahabis in Christianity and I despise them. However, let them move a finger and the Law will throw their sorry butts in jail. Remember the Davidians in Texas? Remember McVeigh when blew the government building in Arkansas? and so on… However, 5thDrawer got it right. I have read your comments about the bomb planted at the Aleppo university and I applaud you. Besides being an act of terror it should be forbidden to say the takbiir before during and after it is done. It should be forbidden to say Allahu Akbar when they cut off the head of a political prisoner or an enemy. The first thing Islam says is bism el laah al Ra7maan (emphasis) al Ra7iim (more emphasis. Now let the moslems evolve. The rest of the world will cheer. believe me.

      youre just upset they didnt pick you.

          nope, next candidate is saad hariri; one way ticket to the moon

    • FreetheME

      And you claim not to be a Racist Hannibal. And Btw, Iranians and Lebanese pretty much look the same. You wouldn’t be putting yourself in that category would you ?

      • Hannibal

        To prove to you I am not racist I tell you that… It is not the genetics nor their looks nor culture I dislike but their social believes and rules… I have a lot of Iranian friends who fled the country sharing my believes. They even taught me a little Farsi… Khoda hafez

        • IraniAngel

          so you speak Farsi? Can you tell me what the following means: kiram too kose farah!
          Khoda hafez literally means may GOD save you. so dont use that word when you dont believe in god.

          • Hannibal

            I believe in God more than you do… It is your fake religion I do not believe in…
            I won’t translate your kosesher because it is street talk. Behave or I will get you banned!

          • IraniAngel

            have me banned… like i would care.

            as far as my fake religion goes i think islam is better off without some one like you.

          • Hannibal

            You mean I AM BETTER OFF without your fake religion right?

          • IraniAngel

            no doubt that YOU are better off without my fake religion… otherwise the americans had kicked you out ages ago..

          • Hannibal

            The Americans accept everybody except terrorists. For now you are on the list. Sorry.

          • IraniAngel

            what a big fat lie

          • Prophettttt

            Hannibal,Now we know who is behind the banning on this site.I hope you’re just joking.

          • IraniAngel

            i recall months ago he denied having anything to do with the admin.. but now he exposes himself

          • Hannibal

            I am not behind your t’s… I can however ask YaLibnan to ban that idiotic Persian from this site because he uses Farsi foul language like the street butt he is.

          • IraniAngel

            please add “proud” every time you refer to me as a persian. i hope its not too much to ask

          • Hannibal

            ok here goes just to make you happy: proud idiotic persian… Happy?

          • IraniAngel

            very happy

          • Prophettttt

            Your comment to IraniAngel does expose you,and implies that you are an instigator and that you favor Censorship for personal reasons. Any claim that He deserves to be banned because of his use of foul language in Farsi, is meaningless because Yalibnan has enforced this policy in a very selective way,and you didn’t complain when others used foul language,nor did you openly ask Yaliban to ban them….. As you very well know, plenty of people show disrespect of other members by using foul language every day, and by disrespecting other faiths, yet they are not banned, as they should. They have banned some people who did nothing wrong, and allowed others to stay on. Attacking other faiths and showing disregard to other people’s feelings about their faiths is disrespectful and irresponsible no matter who does it. Free speech is everyone’s right, but that should be done with sense responsibility . One can’t ask the moderator to ban someone for the same mistakes He is guilty of.
            Everyone has equal rights and equal responsibilities; Rights to express their views, and responsibility to do so in a respectable manor. This site has an obligation to enforce their policy fairly and equally. Banning members for no reason is a form of censorship no matter how hard this site denies it. Censorship is counterproductive and it goes against everything free press is supposed to be.
            As for my t’s, I would give you the benefit of the doubt, and hold the moderator as the only person responsible since He/She had the final decision. Prophet has enough determination and resilience to defend and express his views regardless of how many t’s He’d have to add.
            I just wonder what yalibnan gains from holding my other prophet accounts hostages. As I said many times, I ask them to free my accounts, but I will not beg.

          • Hannibal

            benefit of the doubt? Dude if I were the one behind your t’s I would be open about it. After all what are you gonna do? ban me? lol…

          • Prophettttt

            Even If I could, I would not do it for two reasons;One ,out of principle.Two,Why would I want to deprive this community of your entertainment?lol
            You read(If you did) my entire comment,and you only felt the urge to address the last point I raised,ignoring everything I said about Banning. At least you had the courage to reply,but the guy with the trigger at yalibnan’s editor’s desk didn’t.
            I don’t threaten to ban anyone,and I don’t have the privileges you obviously have.It’s my nature to address what bothers me instead of threatening and insulting people.
            At least with me, I’m an open book; I say what I mean,and I mean what I say.

          nope, next candidate is saad hariri; one way ticket to the moon

    • FreetheME

      And you claim not to be a Racist Hannibal. And Btw, Iranians and Lebanese pretty much look the same. You wouldn’t be putting yourself in the category would you ?

      • Hannibal

        To prove to you I am not racist I tell you that… It is not the genetics nor their looks nor culture I dislike but their social believes and rules… I have a lot of Iranian friends who fled the country sharing my believes. They even taught me a little Farsi… Khoda hafez

        • IraniAngel

          so you speak Farsi? Can you tell me what the following means: kiram too kose farah!
          Khoda hafez literally means may GOD save you. so dont use that word when you dont believe in god.

          • Hannibal

            I believe in God more than you do… It is your fake religion I do not believe in…
            I won’t translate your kosesher because it is street talk. Behave or I will get you banned!

          • IraniAngel

            have me banned… like i would care.

            as far as my fake religion goes i think islam is better off without some one like you.

          • Hannibal

            You mean I AM BETTER OFF without your fake religion right?

          • IraniAngel

            no doubt that YOU are better off without my fake religion… otherwise the americans had kicked you out ages ago

          • Hannibal

            The Americans accept everybody except terrorists. For now you are on the list. Sorry.

          • IraniAngel

            what a big fat lie

          • Prophettttt

            Hannibal,Now we know who is behind the banning on this site.I hope you’re just joking.

          • IraniAngel

            i recall months ago he denied having anything to do with the admin.. but now he exposes himself

          • Hannibal

            I am not behind your t’s… I can however ask YaLibnan to ban that idiotic Persian from this site because he uses Farsi foul language like the street butt he is.

          • IraniAngel

            please add “proud” every time you refer to me as a persian. i hope its not too much to ask

          • Hannibal

            ok here goes just to make you happy: proud idiotic persian… Happy?

          • IraniAngel

            very happy

          • Prophettttt

            Your comment to IraniAngel does expose you,and implies that you are an instigator and that you favor Censorship for personal reasons. Any claim that He deserves to be banned because of foul language in Farsi is meaningless because Yalibnan has enforced this policy in a very selective way. As you know, unfortunately plenty of people show disrespect of other members by using foul language every day, and by disrespecting other faiths, yet they are not banned, as they should. They have banned some people who did nothing wrong, and allowed others to stay on. Attacking other faiths and showing disregard to other people’s feelings about their faiths is disrespectful and irresponsible no matter who does it. Free speech is everyone’s right, so is sense responsibility in doing so. One can’t ask the moderator to ban someone for the same mistakes He is guilty of.
            Everyone has equal rights and equal responsibilities; Rights to express their views, and responsibility to do so in a respectable manor. This site has an obligation to enforce their policy fairly and equally. Banning members for no reason is a form of censorship no matter how hard this site denies it. Censorship is counterproductive and it goes against everything free press is supposed to be.
            As for my t’s, I would give you the benefit of the doubt, and hold the moderator as the only person responsible since He/She had the final decision. Prophet has enough determination and resilience to defend and express his views regardless of how many t’s He’d have to add.
            I just wonder what yalibnan gains from holding my other prophet accounts hostages. As I said many times, I ask them to free my accounts, but I will not beg.

          • Hannibal

            benefit of the doubt? Dude if I were the one behind your t’s I would be open about it. After all what are you gonna do? ban me? lol…

          • Prophettttt

            Even If I could, I would not do it for two reasons;One ,out of principle.Two,Why would I want to deprive this community of your entertainment?lol
            You read(If you did) my entire comment,and you only felt the urge to address the last point I raised,ignoring everything I said about Banning. At least you had the courage to reply,but the guy with the trigger at yalibnan’s editor’s desk didn’t.
            I don’t threaten to ban anyone,and I don’t have the privileges you obviously have.It’s my nature to address what bothers me instead of threatening and insulting people.
            At least with me, I’m an open book; I say what I mean,and I mean what I say.

        • IraniAngel

        Are Iranian’s a race?

        Persians and Lebanese do not look the same. Anyone from the region can tell the difference.

        • Hannibal

          yeah I am more handsome. lol

    i hope they are not sending nasrallah up there as he is the iranian money ,well he is the biggest monkey on earth so far

    • patriotss

      if the monkey is controlling in Lebanon then what does it make u

      • Hannibal

        It controls only the monkeys of Lebanon… Free thinking silent majority that does not buy the crap of politicians on either side are the people of Lebanon. The rest are monkeys indeed…

        • FreetheME

          So what you are saying, that the Shiites in Lebanon and around the world are monkeys. That a majority of Chritians in Lebanon are monkeys. That all the Alawites in Lebanon and around the world are monkeys. That the majority of Druze in Lebanon are monkeys. And the list goes on and on and on. Please Hannibal do tell me who the free thinking silent majority are, Let me guess you and your Salifi/Wahabi brothers.

      • FreetheME

        A Moneys A@@, On a serious note, My suggestion to you is don’t bother. They are blinded with hate which makes them miserable humans.

    Finally Iran concedes that monkeys and pigs are superior to Iranians.

    • patriotss

      at least there not killing PLO in israel

      • Hannibal

        what do you say about the PLO killing Lebanese people in Lebanon… PLO does not represent the Palestinians.

        • williamgel

          …not in Lebanon nor in PA territories.

      This shows you how versant you are in Islam… You carry it from its tail and forget that it has a head… If you are an angel by the Koran you have to bow to me human… The last angel who refused to bow to a human was Lucifer and God casted him into the fires of hell. Well either bow to me or face Shiitaan’s fate… A3ouzou bell laahi mina el shaytaan el rajiim…

    This article is a beautiful example of the biased jouranlism that is so evident throughout this website… Rather than praising the Islamic Republic as the only muslim country that is taking strides after strides in space and other forms of technology, the article has a taunting tone to it appearing like “Iran is sending monkeys into space, hahaha”. Tell me, which other middle eastern country is doing any sort of space adventurism or any kind of technological research for that matter? This action from the Islamic Republic should be commended and not condemned, in a taunting way!

    • Moe28

      Not one country in the entire Middle East has ever sent anything up to space not even a satellite on there own. Not one country in the Middle has ever even built it’s own helicopter, sub, frigate, tank, besides Iran This website does not even have it’s own editors all they do is copy and paste articles.

      • IraniAngel

        imagine what a united muslim world would be capable of.
        the problem with the muslims is that we dont know how great the muslim world would be if we unite.

      • williamgel

        Israel did. Like it or not, they are a Middle Eastern country.

        Perhaps you’d like to qualify your statement with “Middle Eastern Muslim country”.

        Then, after you end your rant, check out stories on Iran’s adventure and the scandal where two different monkeys were used in before/after photos and the possibility that Iran staged the whole thing. Not exactly deserving of kudos, are they?

        • Moe28

          It’s no scandal it’s more biased News why don’t you check out what was reported after that it was a mix up in Photo’s…

          • williamgel

            Iran claims they used a stock photo of a monkey that was killed in their 2011 failed launch as the BEFORE photo, and the other photo is the actual monkey that went up and back. Still, no foreign satellites nor intelligence scanners picked up such a launch.

            It’s a red-face moment for Iran. Just like when they presented a “homegrown drone” as their own and it turned out to be a model built by a university team in a Japanese Science competition.

        • Moe28

          Israel never made a Jet, Sub, Frigate… Markava tank and drones that’s it they upgrade their F16’s and tried making there own Jet but couldn’t afford it.

    • williamgel

      Israel is.

    • Abe Bird

      Israel is one of the most developed state in the world. They have their missiles, satellites, aircraft tanks, canons etc. Arabs should unite with Israel if they want to be something in the world!
