Fantastic Voyage of the Astroworms

 I found this amazing sentence sitting inconspicuously near the end of a news story about Iran's nuclear program:

"In a separate development, Iran said it had successfully launched a rocket carrying a mouse, turtle and worms into space for research purposes."

 And then this:

"The launch of the Kavoshgar-3 – which means Explorer-3 in Farsi – came after Iranian state television broadcast images of officials putting the creatures inside a capsule before the rocket took off."

I want to see these images.

Sounds like the start of a joke
