Go go go! You can do it!
He is a brave chap: I wouldn't climb into a super secret Iranian flying contraption, their brand new stealth fighter looks suspiciously like a fibreglass model (flys like one as well if the grainy video is to be believed).
Didn't one monkey go up and another one come back down? If that is so then go for it Ahmadinejad, who knows who we will get back this time...
Iranian scientists are claiming it was a clerical error that they used the wrong monkey for the second shot.
