Congratulations to Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor


I almost forgot to post this up even though I had written this down earlier.

My congratulations to Dr. Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor on becoming the first Malaysian to go into space. Right now he is on the International Space Station.

Read more about Sheikh Muszaphar on Wikipedia.

Hi ruud van tarun: Thanks for your kind words. Adding you to my blogroll as well.

Kenny: Well officially he is listed as a space participant.

yeah, I know..... been reading about it..... so, technically he is not an angkasawan...... or something like that.....

but since it is easier to say angkasawan...... than space participant....

Regardless of his status cosmonaut or not can't help feeling proud. Giant leap for us I say

Kenny: In the US, anyone ho travel above an altitude of 80 kilometers (50 miles are awarded astronaut wings -meaning they are astronauts. The term "Space participant" was only introduced recently.

Frankensteina, Babyink: Totally agree.
