President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad announced that he is willing to be the first Iranian sent into space on behalf of the nations space program.
"I am ready to be the first human to be sent to space by Iranian scientists," Ahmadinejad said on Monday, adding that he is willing to sacrifice his life for the countrys space program.
"Sending living things into space is the result of Iranian efforts and the dedication of thousands of Iranian scientists," he said, according to the Mehr news agency.
Ahmadinejads remarks come following the announcement last week that Iran had successfully launched a monkey into space.
The launch, which was hailed by Iranian officials as a major accomplishment towards their goal of sending humans into space, added to western concerns regarding the regimes space program because the same rocket technology could potentially be used to deliver a nuclear warhead on a ballistic missile.
The announcement of the launch stirred questions on the Internet, with people pointing to differences between official images of the primate before takeoff and after landing,
On January 28, official Iranian media published pictures of a monkey named Pishgam (Pioneer) prior to the launch. The animal had light grey fur and a red mole above its right eye.
Later, however, the ISNA news agency released photos taken while presenting the monkey to the press after its landing which showed a darker fur and no mole.

If he's willing, I'm willing to wish he returns with the same mole and fur color as he previously had.
I say we donate a rusty V-2 or a solid booster that has expired fuel in it...
Imanutjob would be the second Iranian monkey sent into space....
I think it is a great idea! as long as he has the same fate as that monkey did.
He’s already a freak’n space cadet.
I’ll chip in a buck for the outgoing flight. Return? Well, I’m a little short.
Is there a passengerseat for hmmmm ughhhh get it out my mind, won’t say it. So 2 JackArses will be blown out in space.
Do they call them astronauts over there? The soviets call them cosmonauts. We need to find a name for them...
...or just plain Nauts.
Ahmadinnerjacket as the first Iranian astronaut? Sure!
(I’m sure Mossad can arrange some kind of ‘in-flight incident’ that will blow him to hash.)
The ayatollahs must be driving him nuts.
I think the rocket should look like a pink pig...
He can ride his Pink Pig Palace to Peruse Planets...
Wonder how they’ll face Mecca when it’s straight down. Ought to make for some interesting acrobatics.
Better he than an innocent monkey.
Send him up.
“innocent” monkey? He’s grandfather to a Jooo! But Ahmadenijad is from the pig branch of the family.
I can just see the video now—complete with special effects reminiscent of an old KING KONG movie.
Stuff him into one of their modded Scuds and fire it into a mountainside.
Ahmadinejad Says He’s Willing to Be First Iranian Astronaut
Oh, many apologies!
I hadn’t realized, monkeys are part of the Tribe, (in their sick minds).
Sounds like a win-win situation.
except that he would not be the first Iranian astronaut...
