Iran brings safely a monkey from space

Iranian space monkeyIran said on Saturday it had sent a second live monkey into space and brought it back safely, the latest demonstration of the country’s missile capabilities, state news agency IRNA reported.

“President Hassan Rouhani … congratulated Iranian scientists and experts on successfully sending a second living creature into space,” the news agency said.

Iran said it launched its first monkey to space in January.

Rouhani used Twitter to mark the latest event, a demonstration of rocket power that is likely to cause concern in the West and among some Gulf states, which are worried about Iran’s nuclear ambitions.

He said the monkey was named Fargam and had been returned to earth “safe an sound”.

“In total, this is the second monkey sent into space and returned in perfect health to Iran,” Rouhani said in another Twitter message.

In November, the world’s six powers made a breakthrough deal for Tehran to curb its nuclear programme in return for limited sanctions easing.

The agreement appeared to face its first major difficulty on Friday with Russia warning that expanding a U.S. sanctions blacklist could seriously complicate the deal’s implementation.

The Islamic Republic denies seeking weapons capability and says it seeks only electricity from its uranium enrichment so it can export more of its considerable oil wealth.

The West worries that long-range ballistic technology used to propel Iranian satellites into orbit could be put to use dispatching nuclear warheads to a target.

Iran’s Gulf Arab neighbours view Iran missile capabilities as a threat. Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates have spent heavily in the past few years on advanced U.S.-made missile defence systems.

Iran’s efforts to develop and test ballistic missiles and build a space launch capability have contributed to Israeli calls for pre-emptive strikes on Iranian nuclear sites and billions of dollars of U.S. ballistic missile defence spending.

          • hezzies are terrorists

            I treat people how they treat me Geo. If somebody is nice to me I am twice as nice. If somebody abuses me then i abuse him/her twice as bad. peace can’t help himself all he knows is abuse, so that’s how i will respond to him until he learns respect.

          • I understand but seriously both of you argue like brothers or best friends lol,.

            I wish I could describe to all of you what a great relief it is to toss all these groups and their causes away and stop letting them be a wall between you and one another anymore.

            Read the comments and you will see how divisive they are to all of us and at the end of the day they accomplish NOTHING for humanity…only to their power and greed.

            The biggest lie is that they are noble but decades go by with no fruition of any kind except empty talk of victory and claims of morals as they get more rich and more armed..

            If some sunnis can be friends with some christians and some christians can be friends with some shia and some shias are friends with sunnis WHY IS IT THAT WE ALLOW ANYONE TO STOP US FROM BEING CIVIL AND KIND TO ONE ANOTHER? WHAT IS THERE TO GAIN BY STATUS QUO?

            Trust me I feel so much better since I gave up hope in any manly, political, or sectarian solution.

          • Peaceforleb

            Ok this is going nowhere, my mum is this and my mum is that. Blah Blah BBlah. I will not be responding to you anymore until you can leave family out of it. I never liked that kind of talk. So grow up or f@#k off.:)

          • hezzies are terrorists

            When you learn to stop abusing me then gladly I will leave your whole family out of it. F off? lol that really hurt me πŸ™‚

    Iran is still in the monkey phase? Didnt the US and Russia send their animals in the 1900s? One would think that Russia would share its expertise with one of its only allies in the region, but I guess not.
