Iran Sends Rocket, Capsule Into Space: IRNA: Reply
TEHRAN (AFP)--Iran has launched a rocket into space carrying a test capsule designed to house an animal, the official IRNA news agency said Thursday, amid Western concerns over Tehran's scientific advances.
The Kavoshgar-4 rocket was launched without fanfare on March 15, the report said, citing the president's office.
Western powers fear that Tehran could develop a missile capability, masked behind a science programme, that could deliver nuclear warheads. Iran denies that its nuclear and space work have military dimensions.
Ahmadinejad announced in February during celebrations marking the 32nd anniversary of the 1979 Islamic revolution that the capsule would be tested before carrying a monkey into space.
The Kavoshgar-4, also unveiled in February, has been touted as capable of carrying a payload to an altitude of 120 kilometres.
