Amid the controversies of the safety of the Iranian monkey, that was test fired into space last week, it came as a shocking when Iranian President expressed his wish to become the first Iranian astronaut.
The official IRNA news quoted their President saying, “I’m ready to be the first Iranian to sacrifice myself for our country’s scientists,” in an address to space scientists in Tehran.
With Iran’s space program still in its infancy it wouldn’t be surprising if the dictator doesn’t make it home on the return flight. It looks like it wouldn’t be too long before he ends up sacrificing himself for his country.
