    The Kavoshgar-5 satellite carrier with a bio-capsule holding a rhesus monkey is to be launched between August 19 and 20, he added.

    The rocket will be orbited at an altitude of 120 to 130 kilometers above the Earth’s surface.

    “We have fully packed the cargo which is to be launched into space with a solid-fuel rocket,” he said.
