Iranian government is claiming they sent a monkey into space.
We can't even handle this picture of the monkey....no way is this even real life...it's like they strapped a monkey to a shoe box and blasted it into space
They claim the monkey was blasted into space on a Pishtam rocket and reached a height of 72 miles.
