Iranian Worms in Space!

Iranian Worms in Space!

Iran reports it has launched live worms into space.

Iran has test-fired its Kavoshgar 3 satellite carrier, Iran’s Press TV reported Wednesday, February 3, 2010.

The Iranian Aerospace Organization (IAO) says that a mini environmental lab on board will enable studies of two worms, a rat and two turtles as the rocket traverses the earth.

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).
