Apparently, the Commander in Chief of Iran feels that if a monkey can brave the daring journey to space, so can he.
“I am ready to be the first human to be sent to space by Iranian scientists,” Ahmadinejad told a group of those scientists in Tehran. The
state-run Mehr news agency reported the news this morning. “Sending living things into space is the result of Iranian efforts and the dedication of
thousands of Iranian scientists,” he reportedly continued.
Personally, I think he might want to wait a few more years and see if he can send a cat up next. No one has ever sent a President up into space, for
obvious reasons, but if he thinks he can...well, maybe they need a smarter President anyway.
What does ATS think?
