The Middle Eastern country of Iran has successfully sent a monkey into space.

The monkey was inside a space capsule which reached a height of 75 miles, according to the Iran’s aerospace department.

Don’t worry animal fans the capsule was found after the trip and the monkey was alive.

Some countries are concerned that Iran’s space programme is being used to develop long-range missiles that could carry nuclear weapons.

But Iran has denied it is making nuclear weapons.

The country has previously sent a rat, turtles and worms into space.

The goal for Iran is to send a man into space by the end of the decade.
