Meanwhile religious scholars will be asked to tackle other problems, such as finding ways to help Muslim astronauts face Mecca as they pray while in orbit.

Now that is a real challenge. Wonder how they gonna tarik up in space. What goes up, does not goes down (in zero-g la).

Congragulations to our two elite and brave Malaysians, pray both return home safely.

Only one of them is going. The other will be a reserve and can only go if somebody comes up with USD 20 million for the fare.

I dunno...will Allah really mind if they dont pray directly towards Mecca?

I think it as interesting challenge...but in realistic terms...it would be hard to accomodate the same expectations for prayer (based on the position of the sun at different times of day) on muslims who are off planet :-p

It's already tough enough, for example, in the high arctic...how do you do zohar prayer (when the sun is at its height) or maghreb prayer (when the sun is setting) in Arctic winter, when the sun doesnt come up past the horizon for 3 months :eek:

But if this is tough, imagine the challenges of the future...how will muslims on Mars pray towards Makkah on earth?

Hitch hike on the back of the Russian craft is nothing galmour. We are just passenger like the US female billionaire that went on the trip recently. Big deal? national hero? think again, what are we getting out of this? billion dollar advertisement in space of this beloved country of ours? may be a little, but be prepared for cynical comments from around the world or our leaders will be asking people to "minta-maaf" when the trip is over!

praying in space? no comment la...don't want to open another can of worm here.. but I can not tahan laughing la...

According to Lim Guan Eng, the actual cost of sending our Malaysiannaut to space works out to a cool RM3.5billion!! It cost RM95million for the space journey while at the same time, the Govt has to purchase 18 Russian Sukhoi fighter jets for US$900million (RM3.4billion then)......

I am agree. What's to be so proud of it? I don't understand? If you have the money whoever can go to the space now. Now the govt paid the travel expenses that's all.

If our country can act like china to develop their own space ship with their own tech, than this what we feel proud of it!

Once again don't waste our money lar... Teh tarik in the space? eat roti canai in the space? eat nasi lemak in the space?

Can anyone tell me what is the purpose to sent the malaysian into the space? Any experiment?

After they come back from the space then this guy will get a "DATUK" if I am not wrong :D

then perhaps together with the bagged Malaysian Record title of '1st Towering Malaysian Space Traveller'...Malaysia could instead be 'light years' ahead of the Singaporeans too...

The Bolehnaut has no business going up there unless there is a real tangible/technological benefit to the people and country. Otherwise, might as well stay on land and wait for the wireless connection to come online.

I dunno...will Allah really mind if they dont pray directly towards Mecca?

I think these scholars should first ask, whether is there a problem in the first place. You see, I am sure every movement made by the space ship would be "logged" / recorded. If not, how are they gonna trace where the ship is. Just a simple communication with the HQ of the space shuttle and ask them which direction is Mecca and I am sure they can tell you where to face.

just my point of view

oh, the direction of Mecca is most likely in the direction of trusters....

Cause the front of the rocket is towards the moon, mecca and every other places (USJ included) on earth is facing the trusters (as shown in attachment). so I would think, naturally, while flying, Mecca is most likely in the direction of the trusters unless they have come up with a rocket that can move sideways.

Why are the government doing all this things? Is it important to send one Malaysian to the space? What for? For Fun? How about builiding a WONDERFULLY REMARKABLE sport complex in the UK? What for? For Charity? I think of all the money wasted ..what a true shame..the gov should do something else..eg..building more schools, providing better road facilities /public transport, give increase in gov servant salary etc..etc.. it doenst seems to me they have not enough $$$$..it seems that they do not want to benefit their own people.

I heard Abdullah Badawi received a long distance phone call from Cosmonaut Valery Tokarev, the flight engineer representing Russia's Federal Space Agency when he was addressing the UMNO Assembly yesterday.

Cosmonaut Valery: Good morning Mr. Prime Minister. I am so sorry to wake you up from your sleep at this hour.

Badawi: It's OK. After all our ex PM Mahathir has told the whole country that I use to sleep every now and then and that I have short attention span. Yes, what can I do for you.

Cosmonaut Valery: You know the two CanOrnots you sent here for training, we have problems with them.

Badawi: Can I know what problem?

Cosmonaut Valery: You see even before they are in space, they have gone cuckoo. Instead of playing monopoly to relax, they are playing with 5 stones which we use as paper weight. And then this morning at the breakfast table infront of everybody, they were playing with their tea. When I asked them what they are trying to do, they said they want to pull the tea. And Mr Prime Minister, you know even a 5 year old child knows you can't pull water. And this morning we have to chase them out from our training space module before they break everything.

Badawi: And may I know what they were trying to do in that limited space?

Cosmonaut Valery: They were trying to spin a top. Dont they have common sense what the nail at the tip of the top can do to our multi million roubles space module?

Badawi: Eerr er er can you repeat that cause I was space dreaming.

Cosmonaut Valery: Never mind. But the straw that breaks the camel back was when they told me they just receive a long distance call from you know who back home to test C4 on board the mothership.

Badawi: What!!! Those silly cows didn't read their emails. We have just tested that two weeks ago at Shah Alam and the experiment was just perfect. In that email they are suppose to inform you that there is a slight change in the space program. Our people here said our present space program is the "me too" stereotype pursuit. The people want Malaysia to go no man has ever gone before. Didn't they tell you that?

Cosmonaut Valery: I think they tried to but everytime they burst out laughing and never go to tell us anything.

Badawi: Didn't they tell you that Malaysia wants to go to the sun instead of just space?

Cosmonaut Valery: I beg your pardon but I need to apologise to you Mr Prime Minister for my laughter (this time trying very hard to control himself) Could you repeat that to me again this time slowly and cut out the excitementin you.

Badawi: Well I have just said that we are going to the sun.

Cosmonaut Valery: But Mr Prime Minister, even a 3 year old child knows that it is just impossible to do that.

Badawi: Well, money is not a problem at all. Our Petronas has RM 400 billion in cash.

Cosmonaut Valery: I didn't say you don't have the money Mr Prime Minister. If you can spend RM 400 million in a sports complex which will be hardly used, RM 400 million for a palace for just one man, pay RM 950 million for a bridge which is not even built and what not, we didn't doubt you are unable to pay. But don't you know that the temperature in the sun will melt our space ship even when we are 100,000 of miles away.

Badawi: You also don't worry about that. In our Cabinet meeting last night, my ministers did discuss this at length and they collectively agree that instead of going to the sun in the daytime, we will go there at night. This idea came from Nazri although our usual think thank is now indispose trying to save his own life.

To be continue .......

The gomen is now giving the impression that this space trip is free... tied in with the russian fighter jets purchase. This is BS.There is no such thing as a free gift from the russians, my fren. Space tourists are lining up to pay USD20 mil for each week in space.
Malaysia could easily ask for a discount of that amount or negiotiate to sell this "special offer ticket" for at least USD20mil= RM70mil.
I really see no tangible benefits for spending this amount of money just to join the "also ran club".
How many computers can be bought with 70 mil. and provided to rural schools? Help bumis? This is the way la.
Research in space? Don't joke. We don't even have proper R&D efforts on earth.

Err buddies...Malaysian Defense Ministry under Dato Seri Najib Tun Razak...had signed a contract(or MOU) with the Russian supplier in 2003...to purchase 18 Su-30MKM Multi Purpose Fighter Jets...for USD900 millions(latest news indicates 1 Billion in USD)...which includes a deal to send a Malaysian space tourist into space to the Russian International Space Station...by 2007.

http://www.air-attack.com/news/news_article/916/Russia-to-begin-supplying-Su-30MKM-fighters-to-Malaysia-in-2006.html

On the other hand...the Thailand Defense Ministry...had also signed a contract with the same Russian supplier...to purchase 12 of the same Su-30MKM Fighter Jets...for USD500 millions in CASH and in kind...which does NOT include the deal to send a Thai space tourist into space to cook Tom Yam at the Russian International Space Station...simply because the Thai(s) do NOT see the need to do so at all...

http://www.defenseindustrydaily.com/2005/12/thailand-to-buy-12-sukhoi-fighters/index.php

Err buddies...Orchi's math learnt from Primary school many many moons ago...may be failing Orchi by now...but here are the numbers...

1. Malaysia buys 18 x Su-30MKM for USD1 Billion...= USD55 millions each.
(Note: All Instruments reading n manuals may be in Bahasa Malaysia)

2. Thailand buys 12 x Su-30MKM for USD500 millions...= USD41.67 millions each.
(Note: All Instruments reading n manuals may be in Thai)

For a total difference in purchase costs of nearly USD 240 millions...so here is the deal...

1. Malaysian gets to send a Malaysian space tourist into space to the ISS...to make Teh Tarik...play 'batu seremban'(catch pebbles) n 'gasing'(spin a top).

2. Thailand gets NOTHING MORE except 12 of the same Su-30MKM Multi Purpose Fighter Jets...*Sigh*...poor Thais...

Ahem...is Orchi's math be right...?

Ahem, Mr Orchi. Don't you know that when we buy weapons, they are always one of its kind in the world. What I mean is that the specs are never exactly the same as what other countries (or the home country for that matter) have? So you are not comparing apples with apples. ;)

orchipalar
16-11-2006, 09:17 PM
Err buddies...Orchi is fortunate enough to have had a dream...to fly the older variant Su-30MK...the most advanced MKI...n the latest MKM variant...which Malaysia n Thailand bought from the same supplier in Russia...

Of course there are some notable differences in the armament...technical features n characteristics amongst the variants...

India bought 40 x Su30-MKI...considered to be the most advanced variant...at a price close to USD 1.8 Billions...do have some notable differences...which include the avionics and electronics...co-supplied by the Israelis...n the Indians themselves...

Thailand opted for the Su-30MKM variant which has some notable differences comparing with MKI variant...including having the avionics and electronics supplied by the French...n like Orchi said earlier...the cockpit instruments reading n manuals...may be in Thais...

On the other hand...Malaysians who have to pay USD240 millions MORE...would definitely get the MKM variant with the French avionics and electronics because of obvious reasons...

n among other things(further details unnecessary)...the Su-30MKM that Malaysia would get...would probably have many improvements to the armament...navigational...powerplant...radar...opt ical locator...communication...cockpit instruments(in BM) n other components...which may be supplied by India...or China(it has an existing contract with the Russian supplier)...or they may even come with local designed n manufactured contents...such as batik for the pilot seat covers...

Other than those mentioned...NO freaking wonder...why the ones that Malaysians are buying...are costing so much MORE...for basically the same freaking Su-30MK 2 seaters variants...

Err...ooops!...come to think of it...Orchi forgot to mention...that the Malaysian purchase of the Su-30MKM variant...may be MORE POWERFUL... (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Su-30MKI) as compared with those other variants...bought by other countries...from the same Russian maker...

KelvC
16-11-2006, 09:34 PM
Assumption:
1) Base price for Su-30MKM is USD41.67 millions each x 15 units

2) Base price for M'sia's Su-30MKM is USD55 millions each x 18 units (since M'sia has "space holiday" factored in).

Therefore the overall price difference is approximately USD150mil. Even let's assume that the RMAF's version is the best Su-30MKM variant and the price could be higher, the fact here is margin of difference between the India's plane and ours is too big a difference....oh! And we're paying for some fella to play children's game???

By the way, I like this passage written (http://www.mosnews.com/news/2006/11/15/malaysianride.shtml) by our Russian friends:

"“Batu seremban” involves throwing and catching stones, and is usually played by young girls."

we had a malaysian sailing "solo" around the world, he stopped halfway because the mast broke. we have to fly in a new mast... so it's not really a solo effort anymore. the guy was made a Datuk and Malaysians spent millions to get him there. there was even a 14yo kid from australia who sailed solo around the world... unassisted some more...

then we had this guy swimming across the english channel. along the way, he got swept by strong current and ended up miles away from his target finish. again... he was made a Datuk. and once again, we Malaysian taxpayer fools footed the bill. then the next year, another Malaysian swam across the english channel in less than half the time....

there is a huge debate now in thailand about the deal to purchase the Sukhois. some say it is a big mistake cos the sukhois are bigger fighters, more suitable for long range missions. russia is a big country so they need a huge fighter. but thailand is small... malaysia even smaller. the other thing is the sukhois actually consume much more fuel than say the F16s...

the Thais are paying for their Sukhois with poultry. so it's a barter trade.

2. USD520 millions for no longer the tallest building in the world...Petronas Towers...because the ordinary rakyat jelata don't need it.

3. USD 2.3 Billions for scaled down Bakun Dam...but still long delayed under construction...because the ordinary rakyat jelata don't need it.

4. Proton earned EURO 1 dollar after disposing MV Agusta...which Proton invested for more than EURO 140 millions...because the ordinary rakyat jelata deserves it...

5. MAS has NEVER made 1 single sen for the ordinary rakyat jelata...since its Privatization exercise executed by UMNO...BUT instead MAS has been incurring losses year after year since...for Billions in USD...because the ordinary rakyat jelata are NEVER to question every bit of it...

Absolutely right, orchi. So much evil under the sun.. in this "bolehland"..

A little bit more from The Age paper:

.....Next year, a Malaysian astronaut will go into space aboard a Russian rocket — the first Malay in space. And the cost? M$95m, to be footed by Malaysian taxpayers.
The Science and Technology Minister has said that a moon landing in 2020 is the next target, aboard a US flight.
There's no indication of what the Americans will charge for this, assuming there's even a chance that they will consider it.
But what is Malaysia getting by using the space programmes of others as a taxi service?
There are no obvious technical benefits, but no doubt Malaysians will be told once again, that they are "boleh". The trouble is, they're not. It's not their space programme....

Ochipalar,

Our Learned Friends Asking: Rather Demanding That The Penang Cm Seat Should Be Rotated??

Maybe The Running Of Mas Should Be Given To A Non Bumi Tycoon.(rotated) May Make A Few Billion For Malaysia Airlines.

In The Earlier Days "malaya Airline" Was Managed By A Non Bumi.(an Indian M.director.) They Were Doing Good Until The Smart Bumi Elexess Came Into The Game And Mess Up Everything. ( Correct Me If I Am Wrong).

Not true mate.

We can see the stupidity right here in bolehland.
The difference is that we see and hear so much of it that it's not shocking anymore.

When one is stung by bees often enough, the sting will lose it's effect.

FORUMERS, COUNTRYMEN, MALAYSIANS.....

here is what was published in The New Zealand Herald( Sept 2006)


"Malaysia plans tea party in space"

Malaysia plans to push the boundaries of space travel - by making a cup of tea.

Looks like the WHOLE world would be looking at our "intelligence"

"The physics experiment is to see what happens to teh tarik in space," Haniff Omar, head of Malaysia's astronaut selection program, told reporters in all seriousness......

Making teh tarik in space would bring Malaysian customs to the attention of a worldwide audience, said Faiz Khaleed, one of the two astronaut candidates.

Hmm..where's Boh tea or lipton?..They must be jostling to be choice teh tarik of the universe :D

Main gasing some more...That month i would be an australian :p

Hitch hike on the back of the Russian craft is nothing galmour. We are just passenger like the US female billionaire that went on the trip recently. Big deal? national hero? think again, what are we getting out of this? billion dollar advertisement in space of this beloved country of ours? may be a little, but be prepared for cynical comments from around the world or our leaders will be asking people to "minta-maaf" when the trip is over!

praying in space? no comment la...don't want to open another can of worm here.. but I can not tahan laughing la...

I totally agree man... It just make me so embarrasing ... They should go to moon and pick some stone or something but no teh tarik.. :eek:
They must be thinking that the Russian rocket is made in Malaysia and they can do anything in it... Now the whole world know the first malaysian astronout go to outer space not to research something but go there and drink a cup of tea...

China already gone there 4 a long time ( By their OWN rocket ) and they didnt heat up the news or let the whole world know like Malaysia......

I just heard that now that so called astronout planning to putt a golf ball into outerspace.....

why worry abt it? we got plenty of them in our back yard...........in this case, i do believe the two chaps will be worried who is going to be the one cleaning the russian space module after their tarik stunt......will it be on Astro LIVE??

gravity defying spring cleaning using "malaysian palm oil based cleaner", another point in the record books.

Err buddies...the next thing we know...Malaysia to send astronauts to the moon...in Russian's lunar landing space craft...as part of the negotiated multi billions deal to purchase more Russian made state of the art n most advanced warships...cruiser vessel...nuclear submarines...n fighter jets...which would enhance the nation's defense capability till the year 2020...

The Malaysian astronauts would get a chance to set up among other possibilities...n tasks in the near zero gravity environment on the surface of the moon...

Roti-canai Teh Tarik stalls to see whether the roti canai tossed up n the brew of tea being tarik would taste better...

Nasi lemak stalls to see whether the nasi lemak cooked would taste the same as on the Earth...

A game of goolies or marbles...to see whether the game can be played better...

To play sepak takraw...

To play gasing or tops...

To perform silat...

To fly wau or kites...

I think a secondary or primary school kid can tell that there is very little gravity in space. Why bother doing this experiment ?

To Whom it May Concern,

Dear Sir, I am a forumer with the nick hthee with the banana avatar. Please reconsider in choosing the current two possible candidates as astrauNUTs. I feel I am more capable. So please choose me as the next astrauNut. I shall wear a Sarong with no underwear underneath and see what happens in space. This is to confirm the physics experiment that gravity is little in space. Please consider me as I am going to perform a physics experiment that no one has ever done before.

Thank you.

There will be only two possible effects coming frm the said experiments conducted by our CanOrNot in space.

1. Malaysians will be crying and shaking their heads in despair watching the action...

2. The whole world will be laughing so hard til they tear and split their sides...

Well, lets join in the chorus... 'I started a joke....' (http://www.radioblogclub.com/open/119744/bee_gees/Bee%20Gees_I%20started%20a%20joke)

If Neil Armstrong has known that space travel would become such a joke, he would have deliberately failed his mission so that there would be no space travel.

When the American 1st went out there, their 1st astronaut was a monkey la....the chimp made all the monkey tricks out there. Our can-or-not trained in Russian and will be playing Malaysian traditional game or make teh tarik up there is actually considered quite advanced already.

I wonder how the hero going to pray out there? We must show the world we pray hard even in the space.

Not kacau, but just a constructive idea....just in case, the 2 gentlemen fail to qualify for the flight, perhaps the goment may consider sending an Orang Utan for replacement... but at least must train it now to do some simple show like teh tarik so that it can be more representative. :p

Don't these half-baked politicians and policymakers ever think through and even be aware of the implications of their actions? Malaysia has become a laughing stock of the international community. I was in Singapore last week and I just did not know how to respond when a group of students asked me quite seriously about making tea in space. I was deeply embarrassed.

Malaysia has become a laughing stock of the international community. ...Sadly, most of our politicians are generally selected to stand for election based on the ground support they can rally, irregardless of their intellectual standing or professionalism. Hence, the many comedians around.

It is as if...they are making a mockery out of whatever good...that there has ever been about Malaysia...on purpose.

Some folks Orchi met lately in overseas...are making fun at our attempts to put the 1st Malaysian into space...

Of course we will be ridiculed. There have been a few space tourists alread, most recently a successful Iranian woman. They all paid with their own money.

But this is the first space tourist paid by taxpayer's money.

Of course people are laughing!!!
