"...aimed at bringing back the glory of Muslims ... by drawing well-known Muslim space scientists like Prof Ahmed Zemail and Prof Ibrahim Semiz..."

if you're using tax payers land/money shouldn't it be for the glory of MALAYSIANS?

and have these two Prof agreed or they are kinda like the toothless MSC Advisory Board Members?

malaysia boleh :D

I don't know about the need but I do know it cost a lot of money to keep a university in space. :D

Another Malaysia Boleh stunt. These guys never learn. Keep the Rats distracted while they continue with their stealing.

The Bernama article didn't say anything about using government/tax payers money. This is a private university, to be formed by a local company and its overseas partners. And given the specialized nature of the subject, the oversea partners are likely to be key players in the global aerospace field.

How are they going to get the specialised lecturers and researchers for this uni? Are they going to do like Singapore, i.e. import foreign professors? Malaysia centainly doesn't have enough professors and senior lecturers for our existing universities, let alone for new ones. Although, if the university is filled with (quality) foreign lecturers, maybe they can give better quality education than our local lecturers. Who knows.

I think the chances of the goverment to back and fund this project is very slim. They got their fingers burned the last time they send a Malaysian up to space. I think the government will stay clear of anything to do with space for the time being. :D

Erm, you do realised that the blogspot article that you quoted is pure speculation and assuming-the-worst kind of scenario, right? Besides, the political scene is different now. BN can't do anything sesuka hati anymore. Otherwise, they will be completely out in the next GE, and they realised this.

I understand with this Space University, they will be planning to land the first Muslim man on the Sun. When Pak Lah was told that it would be impossible as the temperatures will be very extreme, he said he has thought about it and was advised by the boys at Level 4 that the only way to do it is to land the angkasawan on the Sun at night.

Actually IMHO - they are not... in fact, they think that they are sharper than the rest of the rakyat...

One way of clearing a BIG forest patch in Kota Tinggi, another way of "acquiring land" at Govt discounts...

then say... "opps! the investors had pulled out..." :rolleyes:

NOW sell the timber and the land... at an inflated rate !! Either way - THEY make more money...

RM6.1B??? Noble intention but we're not that rich. See 'Bersamamu' on TV3 and help them using the money. I may be wrong but if you can't afford a BMW and you buy one, the maintenance and installment will kill you.

This is telling a boy to run before he learns to walk. Our students are far behind the Americans and French in terms of basic education.

Our children do not have the freedom to truly focus on their academic development, sacrificing everything else.

We have new medical students more concerned about the pay after they graduate than mastering their field of study.

We have college students who plagiarize in 70% of their thesis, and they have to be told from A to Z how thesis is written.

Can the products of our basic education study space science?

Only the exceptional few, perhaps.

I am speaking as someone still in college. So I am speaking from my first-hand experiences and observations.

Clearly, these investors are not putting the benefit of our students and children as priority. Or they would have invested in the proper nurturing of our little ones instead.

As the damage in big ones like myself, is already done.

We can only try to graduate in spite of the education. But space science, requires much more than that. It is a commitment that has to come deep within yourself. You have to see science as science of investigation and experiment, and nothing else bothers you.

The nurturing of a scientific mind and soul goes way way back to babyhood.
