Hooray! A Malaysian in space!

Have you ever wondered why our TV and gahmen never calls our dear ‘angkasawan’ in anything in English? Why not just call him an astronaut or cosmonaut, since these are the common terms for someone that goes on a mission to space. Why insist on using ‘angkasawan’ in English?

Because the good-looking doc (envy…jealous…) is NOT a bloody astronaut.

He’s a…. tadda…..

flight participant

I just don’t see what is there to be so proud of to being a spaceflight participant. There’s no technology transfer – which means we learn nothing from it. It takes years to train an astronaut. The doc only had one year of training — that is just a crash course so that you don’t be a hindrance to the real cosmonauts. I seriously doubt the knowledge he acquired from spaceflight participant training is of any good use except to train another angkasawan.

I would be so much more proud if there is a small Malaysian team in the ground support, or a Malaysian scientist working with the Russians in planning the flight, or a Malaysian engineer being part of the team that designed the rocket.

And spending RM80 million to be part of the expedition is a bit of a waste… no?

Well, at least I’d appreciate it if the 80 million Ringgit can be spent to improve the transportation infrastucture and system in KL & throughout Malaysia.

Cakap Tak Serupa Bikin has a few suggestions on how to make Malaysia a safer place with RM80 million.
