Spaced Out Shias

You know how Obama thinks NASA should try to make Muslims feel good about themselves so they'll want to excel in math and science, like they did back when they invented clocks and algebra? It looks like such self-esteem boosting efforts aren't needed--not with the announcement that the mullahs hope to put a man in space by 2019. (Although judging by the photo showing one of Iran's homemade rockets--which looks like something that came in a build-it-yourself-at-home-kids-rocket-kit--they might want to rethink that date and aim more for, oh, say 2119.

Update: They don't need any encouragement when it comes to nuclear fusion, either.
