The telecommunications satellite called “Omid,” or “Hope,” in Farsi was launched after President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad gave the order to proceed, according to a report on state radio.

I believe a translation of that statement included ol' Mahmoud saying "I got your hope, right here."

The booster(read a-bomb sized part) and the communications satellite are now orbiting. It’s quite simple to de-orbit once you have achieved orbit status — you just throw on the brakes at the right point.

Big Oh oh ...
