Sheikh Muszaphar set to be first Malaysian in space
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) on Wednesday.
“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.
He will spend 10 days in space, including eight on board the Inter-national Space Station (ISS) where he will be part of the ISS Expedition16 crew. more
