Did they bring the monkey back down safely (I hope) or fry him on re-entry?

speaking of space travel - did anyone know gary sinise had a band? typing up an order from their rider now.

OK, I see some news reports that the rocket went up 72 miles. Will the monkey be getting a parade?

Based on the list, I would name him Shahab (meteor/shooting star).

Yow....at the "Hello," I thought it was Spike for a moment. There we go, call the monkey Spike.

When I first heard that Iran was sending a primate into space I right off thought that it would be an irangutan

@Ken: There's already a monkey named Spike. He calls several FMU shows :P
Avatar Tue. 1/29/13 6:15pm G:

Maybe they ate it after. Is monkey halal?
Avatar Tue. 1/29/13 6:17pm Carmichael:

Maybe FMU could send Andy Breckman into a short orbit. Think about the ratings, SM Ken!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/29/13 6:18pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Today: monkeys
Tomorrow: monkeys with explosives
Avatar Tue. 1/29/13 6:19pm G:

Space travel is becoming a private sector thing in economically advanced countries. It's the second and third tier countries where the govts use space shots to "prove" something now. I'm sure FMU could get a private sector space shot happening for only maybe an entire decade of their total budget

Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 1/29/13 6:37pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

You're all being silly. This is a purely scientific civilian research mission in which a non-military booster carries aloft the innocent intrepid pioneer monkey named "T-43 multiple impact warhead." Stop making such a fuss.

maybe the monkey will be like Plato's cave. He goes out into space and brings back the knowledge of the earth to all the primates. then they all make better sense of reality that humans.

Yes, Persian is Farsi. Maybe if the crew cabin came back stinky they could call the monkey Fartsy. You never know what those G-forces could force out of the body.

برج جدی, which as far as I can tell is pronounced burj jadi, Persian for "Capricorn." There's a monkey out in the Iranian desert somewhere ready to tell the location of the sound stage to anyone who will listen.

Hey, Chris- anybody knows why you don't wanna name a domestic animal. Its usually because it makes them hard to eat later. So may I offer the name this monkey might have
gotten had he not been gobbled up already- "delicious." Someone in Iran was planning to eat him all along.
