Seems the Iranian government recently launched themselves a small payload into orbit -- and offered to loft satellites for other "Muslim nations," presumably only those that measure up to Iran's notions of the term.
(I'd like to point out that someone of Iranian birth has already been in orbit -- and that she's an American electrical engineer and a member of the X-Prize board).
Despite the likelihood of the launch being more special effects than science, for those concerned about small payloads wobbling into low Earth orbit from Tehran, I offer one possible solution:
That should do a fine job of scarin' the crazed away while proving no bar to rational folks!
