The Iranian president Ahmadinejad has volunteered to go the space by his country's space programme.
It may be added that Iran recently sent a monkey in space and retrieved it alive back on earth. The Iranian sciencetists hailed as a major step towards their goal of sending humans into space.
It was unclear if the suggestion was a serious one, but one group of Iranians declared they would do everything in their power to help Ahmadinejad achieve his goal.
Within minutes of the news breaking, a Facebook page was set up called "In support of sending Ahmadinejad into space".
