Anousheh Ansari's Spaceblog

If you say, "Duh, Anousheh Ansari, who?" she is the one who paid a few millions to be the first female space explorer to spend ten days in space. Read all about her adventure in her blog. And, hehe, her biggest concern is hygiene in space, or, space suit.

On the right of this blog you will notice this announcement, "Donate $ 500 and receive an autographed photo from humanity's first space explorer." So, did she go broke exploring the great beyond? From the blog it appears she is a firm believer in God, and I hope she comes back confirmed in her faith. Her blog has received 470,748 hits as of this day, tomorrow being her last day.

She reportedly paid $ 20 million to get there. By some simple mathematics 40,000 visitors have to pay $ 500 each for her to break even. That would mean merely eight per cent of the visitors to her blog can help her break even, become famous, and even earn from lecturing tours for life. I am not one for such stunts, but must confess I am too broke to even think of contributing my mite.
