Yes, the AP isn't always the best source.




The "meat" of the matter:




Also Wednesday, Iranian state television reported that the country
successfully launched a second rocket into space, following up on the first
such launch in February. 

The rocket, entitled "Kavoshgar 2" or Explorer 2, made it to the lower
reaches of space and returned to earth 40 minutes later on a parachute. It
wasn't clear when the launch took place. 

Iran has long held the goal of developing a space program, generating unease
among world leaders already concerned about its nuclear and ballistic
missile programs.
