How far did this monkey go ? Was this a orbital flight and a planned descent ?

Aftab was launched on a suborbital flight to an altitude of 120 km and successfully recovered, as planned.

The correct translation of AFTAB is "sunshine" not "sun"

The name reminds me of TAFKAP; The Artist Formerly Known As Prince.
In this case; the monkey formerly known as Pishgam...  :D
