andersonmanly: Silverstaff: Because it's being done by a country that we know is working on nuclear weapons, and would have no problem using those weapons on us (or Israel, or the UK), and a space launch like that (if confirmed) would indicate they could reliably build ICBMs to deliver those weapons.

But...why a monkey? If they launch nuclear weapons at anyone, do they plan on having monkeys command the missiles?

It's actually a subtle Persian insult that most Westerners won't understand, which dates back to the reign of Cyrus the Great.  میمون پرتاب من من در چادر خود را or in English, 'I launch my monkey at your tent'

it's 110 degrees out, we don't have AC, we've got people running around dressed in bed sheets, and those things that have female parts better make damn sure they keep those bed sheets covering every bit of themselves or that will be a beating. So, do you guys wabnt to start a missile/rocket program?

Don't worry. They'd never apply the results to future ICBM technology. No way. Just maybe the monkey.

I am okay with that, my 'tent' has anti-monkey armor, aka a roof.

Tremble in fear infidels! Behold our mastery of 50 year old technology! We are on the cusp of touchtone dialing, and we won't play friendly with it. We will be able to prank call the Pentagon with 500% more efficiency.

andersonmanly: It's 2013. We, as a species, have had manned missions to the moon, and currently have a orbiting space station. Why is launching a monkey into space a big deal?


This, sort of.

I find this to be demented. They're repeating research that we did 60+ years ago. It's as if they're cavemen and just discovering technology yet refusing to take our word for it.

Puts me in mind of retarded human beings that are decades late in making some achievement that healthy people managed when they were ten years old or younger.

That's why it's a big deal, it is frightening on that level. Retard strength is a real phenomenon, and Iran is coming into it's own now.

Was it a Muslim monkey?

I am sure Allah would frown on any shenanigans involving primates going sub-orbital if they were not Muslim.

So they achieved a 70 mile suborbital arc with surviving living cargo. Oh that's not for lobbing an RV, not at all...
