Iran announces launch of flying saucer, clueless on definition of term ‘flying saucer’

Iran announces that it has built and launched a flying saucer.  Given that the original announcement came from its state-run news agency, and that other agencies are calling it a quadrocopter, you might want to take the headlines with a grain of salt.  From PopSci:

But a separate news agency says Zohal is actually a little “cuadrotour” drone. Another news release, from the perhaps more reliable Iranian Students’ News Agency, shows a picture of a quadrocopter grasping what looks like an old-school Pentax. The news release says that this, instead, is Zohal.
