|Ahmadinejad ready to become Iran’s first astronaut||
TEHRAN – Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has said that he is ready to become the country’s first astronaut.
“Our youth are determined to send humans into space over the next four to five years, and I’m sure this will happen. I’m ready to make a sacrifice and be the first person whom you want to send into space, despite the high risk,” Ahmadinejad told a group of space scientists and officials in Tehran on Monday.
Iran announced on January 28 that it had successfully sent a monkey into space and brought it back to Earth safely as part of the project to send humans into space.
