Hospital UKM’s Dr Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor will make history when he goes into space on board the Russian Soyuz TMA-11 spacecraft at 9.22pm (Malaysian time) tonight.

“It’s a small step for me, but a great leap for the Malaysian people,’’ Dr Sheikh Muszaphar – the first Malaysian to go into space – told the Associated Press, rephrasing Neil Armstrong’s legendary words after the Apollo landing on the moon in 1969.

Handsome man...is all I remember about him. If you ask me his name ...can't remember lar

As a Malaysian citizens can you tell me just 5 benefits ( no need 10 lar) of sending him to space?

the benefits that I can think of are:
1. Very proud that Malaysia can send Malaysian to space
2. Malaysia Boleh
3. Abdullah can hold a teleconference with Dr Sheikh Muszaphar who will then be on board the ISS.
4. That handsome man can hosting a Hari Raya party on board the space station on the first day of Syawal. He will eat satay and some kuih Raya with the others on board.
5. ???

Lastly don't forget that:
Malaysia is paying for the voyage as part of a billion-dollar purchase of Russian fighter jets.
