until now i keep thinking ..what is actually he brings back from the space programme instead of 'glamorous', i know he was modelling before. But that is not the main purpose we sent aor astronaut to the space. What research that he achieved since our government said, he went there for doing some research..personally i think this programme is one of the failure to Malaysia.
