Regardless of whether the protests lead to concrete change within the Iranian regime, it is now obvious that what is happening today in Tehran will be seen as a key moment in post-revolutionary Iran.
We will be crossing live to Tehran to speak with an American University professor of Iranian origin, currently in the country's capital. In one newspaper piece, Babak Rahimi wrote that witnessing the mass rallies in Tehran made it "hard not to think of the 1979 revolution."
Don't forget to tweet me questions for professor Rahimi @halagorani and I will choose one to put to him live on air.
We'll be covering the story from every angle, including chatting with our Ivan Watson, who's reported from Iran numerous times and is passing through the CNN Center for a few days.
Also in the show today, the story of a Continental Airlines pilot who died in the cockpit of a plane en route to Newark from Brussels.
Two first officers and a relief pilot were on board and took over. A doctor on board told reporters the pilot was already deceased by the time he got to him at the front of the plane.
Allan Chernoff will be joining us live on that story.
On the lighter side of things, Errol Barnett and I will be trying out a new website that claims to be able to help users make decisions and find solution to everyday problems. I'll be trying it out on air so the site will be put to the ultimate live test.
