We Have Lift-off

Yesterday a Malaysian made history when he became the first Malaysian in space. It was quite amusing though to see the government insisting he was an astronaut while the Russians called him a space participant. I do see the Russians point because although he was given some space training, he’s not a qualified astronaut and therefore will not be allowed out of the International Space Station. Whatever it was, I guess it’s a first step into space for Malaysia.
