It's a Patas monkey. Weighs about 3lbs, tops.

Our University rocket club lobbed a 10 lb instrument package up 100 miles and recovered it with no damage (well, there was a bit of damage to the house it landed on) back in the early 70's.

"Because men have lost the objective basis of certainty of knowledge of the thing in which they are working, more and more I fear we are going to find them manipulating science according to their own sociological or political desires rather than standing upon concrete objectivity."

Iran, welcome to the early 1960s.
Worth knowing what they are doing, and what they are capable of. Would be wise to get somebody besides the CIA to do this, given the ineptitude of ou7r CIA; which missed the USSR's collapse, missed 9/11/2001, etc.

Oh!  I thought maybe the "war hero", John "Lurch" Kerry, was in Iran visiting his friends and offered to be the monkey for the mission. :da man:
