Iran set to join nuke club

Iran nuclear flagThe International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has said that Iran is now installing advanced centrifuge machines for enriching uranium at one of its nuclear plant.

Last week it was said that Iranian observers were in North Korea for their nuclear test and now this, it seems certain that Iran is set to follow in North Korea’s footsteps and join the nuclear club.

This has angered the US and they say they are not surprised by Iran’s latest nuclear development.

Where next for the US and the UN over North Korea and Iran? Options and time are running out if they wish to continue exerting their global dominance over other countries.

Iran follows North Korea into space

Iran space monkey flagIran has launched a rocket carrying a monkey into space, one month after North Korea’s successful launch.

This is not the first time Iran has successfully launched into space, in February 2009 and 2010 Iran had success. It is not thought that anything significant was learnt by Iran nor were any significant new technologies used.

Iran plans to use this experience in their aim of putting a man in space and then setting a manned orbital post by 2020. Which still remains highly ambitious.

There are 10 nations (not including ESA) that can independently launch into space, can you name them?
