I know the US would gladly send him to space. They would even pay the costs and take one of their shuttles out of mothballs. As for him getting back that would be another matter.

If Ahmadinejad was serious about offering for this extremely dangerous mission, and the possibility of a very unpleasant death, I applaud him as a very brave man.
Of course it may be that he is found to be medically unfit for the mission.
Just the same it was, if he was serious, a laudable offer.

Don’t let the antics of this very dangerous man distract you from the point of all this. That point is that a nuclear weapon needs a delivery system. “Space flight research” is by definition is research that enables a country to build an intercontinental ballistic missile.
