The headline up top is the caption for the photograph above, as published — above the fold, no less, gracing newstands worldwide — on the front page of today's Financial Times.

The occasion?

"Iran yesterday launched a rocket to mark a space programme that it said would put the first Iranian satellite into orbit with a year and catapult the country into the ranks of space nations," wrote the FT's Anna Fifield and Stephen Fidler in the opening paragraph of the newspaper's lead story accompanying the photo.

MSNBC.com's coverage of the event features the picture up top along with others.
