Blogging from space September 22, 2006

Posted by Matsu in News and politics, Technology, Weblog.

Believe it or not, there is a private citizen acting like an astronaut (or cosmonaut) and blogging about it from the International Space Station (ISS). You can find it here.

There is also a web site dedicated to Anousheh Ansari, the first female private citizen in space. This is what they say about her:

Anousheh Ansari, has been officially part of to the Soyuz TMA-9 primary crew. The first female spaceflight participant launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan on September 18, 2006 and is now aboard the International Space Station (ISS) along with the Expedition 14 crew members: NASA astronaut Michael Lopez-Alegria and Russian cosmonaut Mikhail Tyurin.

As you may already know, the NASA Space Shuttle returned to earth so it is no longer up there docked to the ISS. The person who is blogging even wrote about watching the Space Shuttle re-enter the Earth’s atmosphere. Cool!

The latest post is interesting as it was actually written from space and recounts the trip into space aboard a Russian rocket. Scary!
