Joke of the Century from Kerajaan Malaysia

Is there a doctor in the space station?
The Expedition 16 crew members pose for a portrait at the Johnson Space Center. From the left (front row) are Russia’s Federal Space Agency cosmonaut Yuri Malenchenko, flight engineer and Soyuz commander; astronaut Peggy Whitson, commander; and Malaysian spaceflight participant Sheikh Muzhaphar Shukor. From the left (back row) are European Space Agency (ESA) astronaut Léopold Eyharts, astronaut Garrett Reisman and astronaut Dan Tani, all flight engineers.

Taken the above from Lulu-Aiseyman. Pictures and caption from NASA website. And as Aiseyman pointed out our angkasawan is just a spaceflight participant not an astronaut or a cosmonaut. Looks like our kerajaan is lying again. Spend lots of our money for doing magic and bluff us all. Haha

I know that a lot of other things could be done with the RM30million. (Actually, the figure varies, some say it's higher).

But at the risk of sounding like a selfish @$$hole, at the end of the day, we will always have the poor, our roads will always need maintenance, we will always pay toll, our public transportation will never be enough etc.

IF, this space programme was going to benefit us in some way, ANY way (however small), I'd be all for it even if we could make better use of the money.

But I HONESTLY cannot see ANY purpose in this entire programme, apart from tourism.

Tourism?? I don't think its for that tooo. A mere waste of unnecessary spending by those in authorities.
