“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.
But did a monkey survive the daring Journey?

Apparently, the Commander in Chief of Iran feels that if a monkey can brave the daring journey to space, so can he.
If the monkey died of a heart attack, and Ahmadinejad meets the same fate, will that be so bad? If he's replaced by someone worse than he is, that would be bad.
For one thing, there's the case of the missing mole: The monkey shown strapped into a rocket in photos had a red mole over his right eye, but the "returning" monkey did not. The original monkey also appeared to have lighter hair.
The founder of Space Israel, a non-profit organization determined to send an unmanned Israeli space ship to the moon, hypothesized that the actual space-faring monkey might have died of a heart attack or "that the experiment didn't go that well."
