FLY You to the MOON!

It seems Malaysia is not the first country to send a Muslim to space; according to this letter published in malaysiakini.

The first Muslim went to space in 1985 and that seems eons ago; it was in the last millenium, to be precise. But never mind. The euphoria or mass hysteria has not died down yet and the authorities have now launched our own "space program".

Funding will be an issue and so perhaps this simple sketch will stimulate some creative juice to flow and solve the problem.

h j angus,
They have lost all their sense of priority. So much is spent on the so called purchase of strategic assets. Pray tell me how can 2 submarines can defend Malaysia from external attacks? Nowadays people are using missiles and rockect propelled nuclear war heads from thousands of miles away. I would still maintain that the actual reason for the purchase is to gain hefty commission.

thanks for your comments.
I appreciate your feedback as most people do not realise writing is a lonely preoccupation and a few words of encouragement help a lot!

The RM2b would be more useful creating a safe border on land and also more fast-speed patrol boats.
