malaysian angkasawan

in another few days time, Dr. Sheikh will return to Earth from the International Space Station (ISS). for those of you who don’t know, he’s Malaysia’s first astronaut (Angkasawan). to be honest, in my opinion, he is just merely a SPACE FLIGHT PARTICIPANT.


how can someone be an astronaut after just 18 months of training? if he was participated in the programme for at least more than 2 years, then maybe he will be acknowledged as an astronaut. although the Russian government said that he is an astronaut by their standards, deep down in their hearts they knew that he is not an astronaut YET! well, i believe that his sending off to space is in conjunction of Malaysia’s 50th year of independence. a big deal la. my dad turned 50 last year but he never had a big celebration. he never sent me to space or have a grand birthday party. why do we have to rush to send a Malaysian to space just because our country’s turned 50? it’s like Ian who just had his car driving license a few weeks ago driving for McLaren next season: RUBBISH!! (the idea of sending him to space is rubbish, not you turning up in McLaren colours next season….the latter can NEVER  come across in the mind of a guy with Down Syndrome let alone people who can think rationally)


the real astronaut (if Malaysia wants to continue his programme) is Dr. Faiz Khalid/Khaleed. hehe. kesian dia. nak naik roket tapi kawan dia yang lebih hensem dapat pergi. don’t worry my friend; i will acknowledge you as an astronaut because by the time you finished the programme, you are not eligible to be called a SPACE FLIGHT PARTICIPANT/ SPACE TOURIST. you will be called ANGKASAWAN.

well, i’m not really happy with our angkasawan. well, i wanted to support him because he is going to make history but after Aaron told me about his press conference the next day (got Chiah’s tuition), that wish went down the drain. “….i feel like i have a responsibility to fulfill to my Muslim brothers in Malaysia and all over the you know, i’m going to fast in space and do my prayers in space…. (something like that)…” . dude, what about your non-muslim brothers in Malaysia who paid for your trip to ISS? err, $102 million is not cheap. it’s like paying the cost of a stranger’s house (maybe we did judging by the HUGE mansions that some Datuk-s built which is way past their means).

$102 million can build lots of schools, low cost houses, repair the roads (although our current Works Minister must retire first then only this goal can be achieved) and much more. but we are using it to send a guy to space. hmmm, by my deductive reasoning, we are paying $204 million to send an Angkasawan and a SPACE FLIGHT PARTICIPANT to space (Faiz and Sheikh respectively). but then again, if we can waste money to send Mat Rempit-s to the North Pole, i can’t really see what is wrong in spending that much of money.


Sheikh’s mission in space is planning experiments and some other stuff. at first, we were rocked by the news that he’s going to space to do teh tarik or spin gasing at zero gravity. but we were later informed that we are doing important experiments involving space radiation and stuff. i think his real mission is to send stock and provisions on the ISS. he’s like the Pizza Hut Delivery guy only his means of transportation is a rocket.




another big thing is he is going to celebrate Hari Raya on space and making a big deal out of it. oh, i’m going to eat rendang and ketupat in space. i believe i’m the only guy who can do it. celebrating it in space is a major thing for Muslims around the world. so what, we can send a christmas tree in space and celebrate christmas. or better still: put yihan in a red spacesuit and let your children see him in space. then you can bluff your kids and say that Santa Claus is from outer space and he does not sport a white beard.

sigh, sheikh is going to become a ‘Datuk’ when he reaches Earth. the government is giving this titles away like candy to babies. Tony Blair is not yet a ‘Sir’ despite being the prime minister of England for 10 years and our a guy who went to space will definitely get a title. what a country we live in.

    building them a race track is a good idea..
    don u think so??road accident will reduce n at the same time i can pia there too..chances of me dieing in the track is 50:50 compare to normal road or highway which is 100:0..$102M can send more then 200 hundred students to various prestigious universities in Russia,US,France n Germany to study bout space engineering..instead of sending them they send a space monkey..wat a waste..who knows this 200 graduates can build our vry own 100%Malaysian spacecraft n send it to space ourself 1 fine day..y want to send a monkey to space in a rush..any 1 agree??

    I agree with you to a point ( especially about the mat rempit part). RM 102 million is a HUGE sum of money for a developing nation .Yeah, like what you all have said : build roads, school, sent students overseas so we can built our own ‘rocket’ in many years time..etc.

    Look at the bright side..he might be a space monkey, but like chemistry reactions, without initiation reactions, how can we get the products? This is kinda like a ‘starter’ to fire up passions in ‘youngsters’ and with these passions Malaysia might have the ability to built a rocket someday. If now is not the right time, when is the right time? 50 years or maybe 100 years later? The experiments conducted in space is to help in Malaysia’s economic growth. He used the technology and equipments which are available in Malaysia at this stage. If Malaysia are able to manufacture the results of these experiments locally ( especially enzymes), we can rake in billions!The progress of biotechnology industry will increase and we could also sell these technologies( space technology and such) to other country ( if we manage to join forces with NASA and other space agencies in space research). That will be the time other country have to give us 102 million to send their 1st space flight participant to space..wakakaka!!

    Everything has a dark side and a bright side, it’s up to you to ‘see’ what you want to ‘see’. We can have an almost perfect proposal, but never the perfect proposal. Nothing is perfect, right?

    p/s: sorry for my grammar mistakes and for such a long comment…
