Watching a fellow Ex-Muo blast off to space

I am watching live on Astro Ch. 588 now, eagerly waiting to reach 9.21pm Malaysian time (+ 8.00hrs GMT) for the Soyuz spacecraft carrying Angkasawan Negara aka ANSARAWAN, Dr. Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor Al Masrie, 35, for the 16th mission to the International Space Station, orbitting 360km above sea level.

Dr. Sheikh Muszaphar, a HUKM orthopedic surgeon will be carrying out some medical and scientific research for the 10 day mission.

Dr. Sheikh Muszaphar is a fellow Ex-MRSM Muo Alumnus. That made me very proud that the first Angkasawan Negara is actually an ANSARAWAN.

Dr. Sheikh Muszaphar will be spending Ramadhan and Hari Raya Aidil Fitri @ Eid floating in weightlessness, in the most sophisticated and expensive scientific research laboratory in the world (in this case, outside the world!). One of the experiment he would be conducting is on genetics, on behalf of my brother-in-law, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Mohd. Saifulaman Mohd. Said., Director of Bio-technology Centre in UiTM Shah Alam.

Best wishes and may Allah s.w.t., God al Mighty bless Dr. Sheikh Muszaphar and the crew of this historic mission to ISS.

This mission brought MRSM Muo and all the warga ANSARA and MARA very proud.

*Update as of 10.00pm. Former Masjid Negara Imam, now Exco Pemuda UMNO Dato' Firdaus Ismail recited a beautiful doa for the Angkasawan Negara's mission. May the holiness of the Ramadhan month provide the blessing from God for the mission crew and their work.
