Iranian Moon Base?


That was my first thought when I read Nazila Fathi's story in today's New York Times about Iran's launch in recent days of a suborbital research rocket, which carried a payload 94 miles high before returning back to earth by parachute.

Who knows how far this country's skilled scientists can โ€“ and will โ€” take them?

Here's a link to the BBC's coverage.

Here's a link to an Iranian report on the launch.

As George Orwell would have said if he'd been writing about Iran instead of Eurasia...
"We have always been at war with Iran".

Funny...my first thought is that this is getting close to ICBM territory. Good to live in New Zealand.
