Prior to the manned mission, two dummies and a monkey will be launched into space as part of an experimental project.

The first Iranian-built manned spacecraft has been unveiled at the Museum of Science and Technology.

The space capsule was originally scheduled to place an individual in orbit at an altitude of 170 km by March 2016, but the project was put off for three years.

Prior to the manned mission, two dummies and a monkey will be launched into space as part of an experimental project.

The capsule is to take individuals to the International Space Station in the future. Some 150 Iranians have so far signed up as volunteer for the space mission.
