First Female Space Tourist

I came across this very interesting blog from Anousheh Ansari, the first female space tourist. She is currently in space and her diary of life in a space station makes for an enlightening as well as a very entertaining read. She talks about simple things that are a whole other story in zero-gravity - things like eating, shampooing, brushing teeth etc. Click here to visit her blog.

She came back down today to earth!
She paid 20 million for the ride, I heard!! WOW!!
Would you go to space if you had the chance?

Naah! I'd rather see more of Planet Earth- visit all the countries, if I had 20 mil. Claustrophobia apart, staring into space (literally, in this case!) sounds pretty boring to me!
How about you?
