Persian Kitty in Space!

Persian Kitty in Space!

In the name of science and cultural identity, Iran’s space program is considering blasting a fluffy Persian Cat into space early next year, maybe around Nowruz 2573 (Persian New Year March 20, 2014). They claim this will prepare them for human spaceflight, but we think it will delay the program. Honestly, have you ever just tried to drive a big fluffy kitty to the vet? What’s the Farsi word for “”Fuhgeddaboudit?”
