Science Fiction Versus Science Fact

Allah explores Iranian science fiction and finds it blandly going where Mel Brooks has gone before. Me? I think this Iranian-born astronaut is far more interesting. As I wrote a couple of months ago:

I wonder if the mullahs back home, and her fellow Iranian women are aware of these images, and the power of their symbolism.

No wonder they’d rather crank out grade-Z sci-fi propaganda instead.
