Iranian rocket puts satellite into orbit

Steven Cox

Are you sure?

"With the launch, Iran joins a select group of nations able to put objects into orbit around the Earth. The UK, for instance, has never built a rocket capable of doing this, has no civil space launching capability, and is reliant on US-supplied Trident missiles to carry its nuclear weapons."

Can i refer you to: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Arrow

and also: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timeline_of_first_orbital_launches_by_country

Am I the only one....

that thinks that it it wont make much difference whether 1 nuke goes off or 3+ for this popcorning to happen (if it can) i am guessing that the nukes would have to be pretty close to each other so the over all result wont be that much different...

I am sure i watched a series about this company on the Discovery channel a few years ago... could be wrong (but very rarely am, apart from when it comes to spelling)

How it works...

So in theory, if everyone who see's for example the word "cat" types in "dog" the computer will think it is actually "dog"? i say we pick a random word (say "monkey") and anytime it comes up we type "santa" just to confuse other people.

ok it doesnt have to be those words but u get what i mean.
