Launch + Orbit Achieved!

Filed under: Orbit,space-launch — by Peter @ 4:37 am

It’s a gorgeous day in Baikonur. The Soyuz TMA-9 spaceship and the Soyuz booster look beautiful, silhouetted against a clear blue sky.

Mike Lopez-Alegria (Mike LA), Mikhail Tyurin (Soyuz Commander of Expedition 14), and Anousheh are now suited and onboard. Anousheh is seated in the right seat of the 3-person capsule

This pad is the same used 45 years ago to launch Yuri Gagarin on April 12, 1961. One hundred years from now, this may be a historic shrine celebrating the earliest days of humanity’s first evolutionary steps toward the stars.

This mission’s call-sign is “Vostok” which means “east.” It is also the name of the vehicle that carried Gagarin into orbit.

The onboard TV cameras have just gone live with in-cabin video. I can see Soyuz Commander Tyurin in the center seat, and NASA Astronaut Mike LA in the left seat.

Now the camera angle has just changed and I can see Anousheh in the right seat. I think she has a permanent smile on her face! She’s running through the check list. Her glass bubble helmet is half-open. In the foreground of the image you can see a little stuffed bear dangling from the control panel… almost like you would put on the rear-view mirror of your car. This is just one of the many Russian traditions. When the bear floats, you know you are in Zero-G.

I remember in 1983 when I traveled down to Florida to watch the flight of Sally Ride, the first US woman to fly into space. One of the billboards said, “Ride Sally Ride, and all you guys can go along too.” For too long spaceflight has been a male-dominated occupation. One of Anousheh’s goals, through this flight, is to help excite young girls worldwide to follow in her footsteps and reach for the stars.

I just had two friends call me to make sure I’m watching the flight. Jack Bader, X PRIZE Trustee in St. Louis, and good friend Dr. Kyle Sprecher in Houston. I hope many more are also glued to the TV or internet.

The voice of mission control has just announced that we’re at L-10 minutes and all systems are go.

I just received a call from Eric Anderson, CEO of Space Adventures. He and his entire staff are up late in the office, watching the launch on a large-screen TV. Eric tells me not to get too excited until after L+8.5 minutes, when the staging has completed and vehicle is in orbit.

At L-30 seconds… I can feel my breathing change… the control arms have just pulled away from the vehicle… the cosmonauts are shaking hands.

L-0… Ignition, launch… the vehicle looks perfect climbing into the sky… the plume is now looking like a star rising into the sky.

L+5 minutes. I can see Anousheh from the onboard cameras. Amazingly the TV signal is clear and strong. Anousheh still has her permanent grin. She is following along on the check list. Mission control is saying that all is operating nominal, g-forces are normal, vibration is minimal. Stage 2 has just completed its burn and Stage 3 is now operating nominal. At 7 minutes into the flight the speed is now 13,000 miles per hour, on the way to orbital velocity of 17,500 miles per hour.

The magic moment has arrived — 8.5 minutes into the flight. The third stage has completed its task — Soyz TMA-9, Expedition-14 is now safe in orbit.

Congratulations Anousheh, your dream has come true. You are in orbit! You have made it to space. You are one of only 500 humans who have ever traveled to space.

I can’t wait to go too. Keep my seat warm :-)

-Peter

  14. Dear Anousheh,

    I was hooked on to the NASA screen, on my Computer, from 00:00 hours upto 01:00 hours and even though I did witness your take off I was unable to see it as clear as Peter has described it.

    How ever I am going to be monitoring your journey all through the 8 days and once again congratulations and I am sure we will all see you back safe and with loads of experience to share with us all.

  28. Good Luck in Orbit!

    Hey people with the station much bigger now it ought to be much easier to go outside and watch the station while she is docked.

    Have a good trip! and don’t let the idiots on earth bring you down. I am looking forward to seeing the results of your work helping to bring space to the people of earth.

    Hey Anousheh will we perhaps see you on a SpaceX Dragon flight to the Skywalker Space Station in the future? (Assuming Bigelow Aerospace will launch it before 2020)

    Comment by Zachstar — September 18, 2006 @ 7:12 am

  29. Iranian share one feature which is being UNPREDICTABLE, Anousheh is not a prfessional astronaut, given this it is amazing how she handled the whole thing.

    God bless her and all the crew on board!

  42. متاسفانه آسمون مشهد بد جوری ابریه.وقتی که نباید بگیره میگیره.
    نتونستم رفتنتون رو زنده بینم ولی همه شبکه های خبری رفتنتون رو نشون دادن و غیر زنده بدرقتون کردن.
    به امید دیدار ویا دیدار عکسایی که از اون طرف آب وخاک میگیرین.
    حساب کردم دیدم با هزینه ای که از خشکسالی سخت امسال به این استان تحمیل شد میشه 1750نفر رو به فضا فرستاد .نمیدونم ربطش چیه,ولی…
    دوست دارم جز اولین کسایی باشم که تصویر فیلم ویاعکستون رو وقتی برگشتین ببینم.آخه همشهری گفتن!
    گفته بودین چه قدر حاضریم واسه رسیدن به آرزو هامون پرداخت کنیم و واسه رسیدن بهشون تلاش کنیم؟من که میگم به قیمت و اعداد نیست.توی یه جمله میگم:هرچقدر که بتونم ومحدوده عمر اجازه بده!
    وبلاگ من به خودش میباله که رد گامهای اولین زن ایرانی فضا نورد رو روی تنش حس کرده وهمیشه بوی گامهاتون رو روی وجودش پخش میکنه و خودش رو معطر میکنه.
    امید وارم دوباره به من سر بزنین.
    خانم انصاري:از حالا منتظر ديدن سايتون روي ماه هستم.از پس فردا چشام به آسمونه.خوب نگاه کن!يکي داره واست دست تکون ميده.واستون دعا ميکنم،اصلا اين شب جمعه که رفتيم حرم،مختص شما.وعده ما پنجشنبه ،بيست ويکم سپتامبر(سي ام شهريور)همزمان با روز تولدم.ميعادگاهمون:من توي صحن رضوي زير آسمون شب،شماهم توي سفينه فضايتون پشت پنجرش.به اميد موفقيتتون.

You are the best role model for women and the Iranians. Keep up with you work towards the goals you have set up. Have a safe trip back home!

    we just had a great celebration with your grandmother, your uncle and the rest of the family in front of the tv; we drank champagne and celebrated your amazing dream come true; we kept screaming every time that the camera was on you or your mom, your husband or atousa! i took pictures from the program for khaleh joon who miraculously feels better since the nasa tv is on, 24hours a day in her room; Mister Spock himself would have been proud of your Vulcan Salute darling…

    come back home safely,

    When I was 15 years old,I had the same dream that you had..
    Everybody said:”You are just a child,you are crazy or you are not logic!”
    I killed that dream inside..But now you Mrs.Ansari gave life to it again..

  61. Just about 3 years ago while I was walking in one of Tehran’s streets,I asked something from my dad and that moment I made a wish or it might better to say a dream..After three years I feel one step closer to that dream and now seeing you and your determination,ambition,power and your priceless faith in your abilities make me sure to seek my dreams even if it seems so far..It definitely won’t be as far as space that you reached it.
    Don’t know how to say my feelings..Just wanna say as an alone Iranian girl who left her land to reach her goals,im SO PROUD OF WHAT YOU DID and WISH U ALL THE GREAT SUCCESSES..
    The first female space tourist,YOU DID A GREAT JOB.

  64. Hi! I have been following your trip ever since I first heard about it on bbc news. Although my passion for space travel is no where near as passionate as yours is, I feel so much curiosity it is hard to not to be drawn into it. Your life story interests me so much, being such a high acheiver from such an early age and having the guts to move to a completely different country to pursure your dreams takes alot, I know. Being 17 now, there is so much I want to see and do, I am, at the mintue doing what I want and seeing a bit of the world, and enjoying my work as trader massively! I think you being an ambassidor for private space travel is excellent, you have certainly captured my interest and your passion for space is very encouraging! All the best with your trip, I hope its everything you dreamed of. Lloyd.

  90. Although I am proud that an Iranian has achieved such a success
    and everytime I read a news about anoushe these days in newspaper or internet my eyes fill with tears of happiness but I think this is not a credit for Iran that somebody from Iran goes to space this is a credit for USA.
    I am realy proud when Iran can send somebody to space regardless of her/his nationality.

    Have safe trip to space Anoushe
    Hope to see you on Earth again

    Spontaneously, by beeing what you are, you incarnated the possible peace ….. but Mr. this and Mr. that have their own limited views opposite to your broad love of life..

    But why did you agree to take off the Iranian flag from your flight suit, and to display only the US flag ? The logo on your website has both flags, so why did you cave in to the demand of the US govt ?
    I am sure that you are proud of your origin, so I don’t understand and am saddened by your decision.

I believe that you are doing it so that people know you anywhere in the world, you could have dedicated the 17 million dollars to social necessities. For example with that money you could solve the problem of house of many young people in Spain, people would love to you. :)

  141. Tabrik migoyam Anousheh!

    You have realized one of your dreams and captured the attention of much of the world. By being such a dedicated and effective crew member of the Vostok mission and working so hard to achieve your dream of going into space, you have become a hero and role model for millions of young people around the world. You may not realize it yet, but in the next few years, many baby girls will be named Anousheh because of you, and many young people’s lives will be different because of the example you have given them.

    You work to bring people together to make space travel a reality and to help take humans to far planets. Even if that does not happen soon, you can be proud that helped inspire a generation to make it happen sooner because of you.

    Many people in Wisconsin are following your travels in space and wish you well. When you come to EAA, I hope to meet you and hear about your time on the space station and the next mountain you have set your sights on. Perhaps we in Wisconsin can be part of helping you reach your next goal.

    Please continue working hard to achieve new dreams and always be a shining example to those who follow your adventures!

    نتوانستم پرواز شما را مستقیم ببینم، میخواستم همزمان با سفر شما به فضا برایتان آرزوی سلامتی و موفقیت کنم. اما حالا که به سلامتی در مدار هستید خوشحالم و امیدوارم سفرتان به بهترین نحو ممکن به پایان برسد و شما سلامت به آغوش زمین برگردید.

    شاد و سلامت باشید

    علی

  146. Anousheh, Congratulations! Your dream has come true. I too used to stare at the stars (still do), and dreamed of one day going up in space to do experiments. Stay safe and Godspeed!

  148. WOW!!! Congratulations. I was just reading the story of your launch in the NYTimes and the part about your aunt jumping up and down with joy as the rocket lifted off….brought a tear to my eye. Thank you so much…you are carrying the dream for millions of us on the ground who would give ANYTHING to be in your spacesuit this morning!!

    Comment by Erfan& Hamed & .... — September 18, 2006 @ 4:32 pm

  164. Dear Anousheh,
    You are a thrilling inspiration to me. Hafez agrees. He says:
    ستاره اى بدرخشيد و ماه مجلس شد
    دل رميده ما را انيس و مونس شد
    “setAre-i bederakhshid va mAheh majles shod,
    deleh ramideyeh mA rA anis o munes shod”
    “Anis” is as close as I could find to “Anousheh” using the classic faleh Hafez technique of opening up the book at random. (OK, it was a few flips before that showed up : ))
    You certainly are a shining star, and really looked like one what with the view of the burning rockets of the soyuz seen from below, where the rest of us, your fans and well-wishers huddle and wait for your safe return.

    We with the “deleh ramideh” – skittish hearts, bolting, startled, disillousioned. Longing to break free from earthly bonds. You’ve done it! You are companion, comrade and champion to us all!

    What a thrill!

  166. Congradulations Anousheh. I have been following your training and blog, indeed your career since I first learned of your involvement with the X-Prize. I just finished reading your interview with Space.Com and I notice how often you mention your husband and your family, so easily, because they are so much a part of you. My wife, Sue, and I just celebrated 40 years of marriage yesterday. Last night, after she was asleep, I turned on the television to watch your launch into space, and I remember thinking how proud it made me feel to watch you go, even though you don’t know me. Just to watch someone go after their dream with such “life” and push the envelope, pull out all the stops and to see you achieve. It made me proud. You didn’t do it for money or as a career move, but because it expressed, at the deepest level, who you are and what you are made of. You are indeed an inspiration, but not just to women and girls. You inspire all of us.
    May God bless you and keep you, safely, in the palm of his hand.
    May you return to your family, refreshed, excited, and eager for more life.
    May God bless all those persons who you love, and may you see long life and full days in their company.
    Sincerely,
    Chuck Longton

  170. Anousheh jan,

    Congratulations!!!! Ali and I stayed up and watched your launch last night and were as thrilled as you were! We are so proud of you and what you have accomplished for our generation.
    I could not help keeping the tears back seeing you saying goodbyes to your mom, your khaleh, Hamid and Atousa; but also was happy seeing you smile the whole time. Ali and I wish you a safe and happy return home. Have a blast up there!!!
    Love, Marjun and Ali Ghassemi

    Comment by Marjun Ayati — September 18, 2006 @ 5:31 pm

  171. Anousheh,
    You have accomplished my dream. Eversince a teenager I wondered about the moon and the stars, wrote many poems about them and desired to visit them. Recently, I was asked that if I could not fail at any task, what would I choose to do? And I immediately responded to travel to the Mars! Others looked as if my dream was a fantasy one and out of reach. They wanted something more achieveable, but I knew that if I fail at anything I do it again till I get it right. Failure is not my fear, but if I could do one thing without limitations I would choose to do what you have accomplished, and here you are on space. You have no idea how exceptionally inspiring this news is to me for I know that before I die, one day I will step into the orbit and now my other dream is that as a citizen of the world to be able to meet you, another citizen of the world, in person, shake your hands, look into your eyes and share your desires to accomplish the impossible & to help the human race.

  176. You Go girl !!!
    Watched the launch; saw Anousheh smiling away; saw the bear start floating…
    I loved the procedures and traditions of the Russian operation.
    and, though I hope and pray for a completely safe and productive trip, I want to give two web links about how important an understanding of Plasma is to space travel.
    I’ve read in the media (even the “Scientific” media) that the risks of interactions with electrical phenomena on the way to and back from space are minimal but the two links below tell a different story…
    I hope the powers that be are taking note of the problems indicated, even if they keep it it “in the drawer” publicly:

  229. ma chère Anoucheh :Ce matin , quand j’ai entendu la nouvelle , c’etait quelque chose de particuliers , indescriptible .J’etais fier d’être Iranien surtout dans en ce monde de tension , c’était extraordianire.Bravo Anoucheh, pour ton esprit de conquérent et de victoire .Merci pour la joie et la grande fierté que t’as pu injecté dans la veine des millions Iraniens expatriés à travers le monde. Je n’arrive pas à y croire… qu’en ce moment une belle Iranienne ,rentre dans ce club prestigieux, et qui tourne dans sa capsule tout en haut autour de notre planète et qu’elle veille sur nous tous…C’est inimaginable .Je suis vraiment ému et en larmes…ZENDEH BAD + SADHA AfARINES.

  233. با سلام
    نمی دونم چی بگم الان برنامه ی آسمان شب لحظه پرتاب سایوز رو نشون می داد. نمی دونم احساسی رو که داشتم چه طور بیان کنم. من خودم یه دخترم و همیشه رویای بزرگ من از وقتی که فقط 8 یا 9 سال داشتم سفر به فضا بوده.
    در لحظه پرتاب حس کردم خودم داخل سفینه هستم هم ایرانی بودن و هم زن بودن شما باعث شد این حس به من دست بده. نفسم به شماره افتاده بود یه حس و هیجان خاصی که تا حالا نداشتم به من دست داده بود. قلبم یه جور دیگه ای می زد واقعا حتی برای چند ثانیه هم که بود حس کردم این منم که دارم با سایوز به فضا می رم.
    فقط می تونم بگم خیلی خیلی خوشحالم. از صمیم قلب خوشحالم و براتون آرزوی سفر خوب و مفید و به دور از هرگونه خطری رو دارم .به امید روزی که همه ایرانی های عزیز به موفقیتهای این چنینی دست یابند .
    یه پیشنهاد اگه بتونی وبلاکت رو به زبون فارسی هم داشته باشی خیلی خیلی عالی می شه.موفق باشی
    آرزومند آرزوهای سبز شما:مرضیه

  234. Dear miss Ansari. At this time you’re in the sky, having a look at the wonderful sight I always dreamed to look at, since being 6 years old (being now 32). I’m not American, nor Iranian, but should like however to congratulate you for having achieved one of your dreams (sure this is not the only one… what will be next ? to the moon ?)
    Greetings from Belgium (you know, the small but only country you can see from space because of the thousands of lights along roads burning all night long – the lights, not the roads ;)).
    Wish you to fully enjoy your 240 hours in space !

  238. Anousheh… congratulations on acheiving your goals and reaching for the stars. Looks like we have a present day “Princess Leya” and a much prettier one to boot! After reading these comments on your trip, it seems you have engaged the hearts of many people, me included. You wouldn’t happen to have a twin sister who is single, would you? :-)

    Peace be with you and have a safe journey home…

  239. سلام خانم انوشه عزیز من از مدتها پیش خبر پرواز شما به فضا رو دنبال می کردم واز خوشحالی سر از پا نمیشناختم که یک زن ایرانی به فضا میرود اونهم برای اولین بار و الان که اینو مینویسم حدود دوازده ساعت از پرواز موفقیت امیز شما میگذرد الان شما در فضا هستی وما اینجا دلمون با شماست و مطمئنم همه مردم ایران شما رو دعا میکنند چون تا لحظات آخر پرچم کشورمون روی بازوانت بود که شنیدم دولت آمریکا با این پرچم عزیز روی بازوی شما به شدت مخالف بوده … به هر حال امیدوارم که همیشه موفقباشی و به سلامت و با موفقیت بر گردی و حتما یک سخنرانی هم در کشور خودمون داشته باش چون همه مردم شما رو دوست دارند من مرتب سایت شما رو دیدم واقعا چهره خندان شما اعتماد به نفس و بزرگواری شما رو ثابت میکند مروز صبحکه تلویزیون ایران بطور مستقیم نشون میداد لحظه پرواز شما رو به فضا همه مردم برات دعا کردند

    Comment by Farhad ......... — September 18, 2006 @ 9:09 pm

  242. I have been following the Nasa fleights for some time now and have often thought that all humankind should be made to watch the videos coming down from ISS and the Shuttle. My thinking has always been…. “It’s so small… It’s so frigile” meaning our earth, our little blue marble. Often, I have looked at the clouds, then through them and thought of the people killing, murdering and doing heinous things to each other, to the other inhabitants of this world, to themselves and perhaps most important, to the world.

    I have thought those things and during one of the interviews, you were saying them, and I thought- “What a beautiful person”.

    That was the first I knew of you.

    During that same interview, which I failed to tape, there was a question about woman-beauty and did you think this would change your opinions, to which you replied something to the effect of “of course, it’s going to change my opinions! I believe I heard a silent “dah!”

    Your honesty, your insites, your personality (and hard work) have put you in a position to affect all the citizens of earth, and I hope that you will use it fully. And, honestly, I hope that it will bring you material gains so that you can continue to do the good things that you are doing.

    I believe that you can be a shining star to alot of us, that you are a shining star…. just by being you! And, maybe mostly to the children, not just in Iran or here in the US, but to all.

    Thank you so much for being you!

  256. Dr. Diamondis,

    Don’t worry about people not watching. I called about 15 people in my family at 1045 CST and demanded they watch this historic flight. Most of them, I am happy to say, were pleased I called as they were also looking forward to the launch.

    What a fantastic moment for her! We are all proud!

    See you all at the XCUP. I am trying to let everyone who can’t make it know that I will be driving 3177 miles from Minneapolis with three of my good friends; we will be posting images and video on my blogsite: newspaceage.blogspot.com of your much anticipated event!

    Congratulations on a wonderful day!

    Comment by Andy Motherway — September 18, 2006 @ 9:55 pm

  257. Sweet Anousheh,

    As yesterday unfolded, we watched for hours as your pre-launch suit-up and interviews took place. The theater was filled with your friends who were literally glued to the screen unable to tear ourselves away. We cheered when we saw your family waving and wishing you well. We held our breath and crossed our fingers until the final boosters had performed their task to rocket you into space. And we puffed up with pride when you waved for surely you were waving at us. Though far away, the sparkle in your eyes shined through. Savor every second in space, then return home for you are truly missed.

    Hugs,
    K&G

    سلام بر بانوی افتخار آفرین ایرانی

    انوشه جان اکنون ساعت به وقت ایران 2:30 صبح هستش . پرواز شما به آسمان حدودا ساعت 4 بعد از ظهر به وقت ایران بود . به این دلیل خاطرم هست چون با این سرعت های پایین اینترنت توی ایران سعی داشتم که آخرین خبر ها را از سفر شما بدست بیارم و برای دوستانم بفرستم . همه کانال های تلوزیونی داخلی را عقب و جلو کردم ولی خبر خاصی نبود
    ولی برای من خبر بسیار مهمی بود گویی خودم دارم میرم به فضا
    یک ایرانی یک افتخار – تصاویر و توضیحات راجع به شما و سفرتان اینها بخش هایی از پیام های من در یاهو مسنجر برای دوستانم بود
    دلم می خواست به گونه ای این شادی خودم را با همه ایرانی های ایران دوست و با شما قسمت کنم
    البته الآن فکر می کنم که حدودا 15 ساعت و نیم باشه که از پرواز شما گذشته دوست دارم در همینجا برای شما در این سفر آرزوی سلامتی و شادی کنم و آرزوی موفقیت لحظه به لحظه در کار و زندگی تان و امیدوارم که از ثانیه به ثانیه تحقق رویای همیشگی تان لذت ببرید
    موفقیت شما و ایرانیان افتخار آفرین در سراسر دنیا افتخار ایران و همه ایرانیان واقعی است

    من هم یک دانشجوی رشته کامپیوتر در ایران هستم و عاشق فضا و امیدوارم که بتونم اراده و پشتکار شما را سرمشق خودم قرار بدم تا به اهداف خود برسم . البته امکانات نیز فاکتور قابل توجهی در کنار ذهن کاوشگر و اراده حرکت به سمت هدف به حساب می آید

    باز هم برای شما آرزوی موفقیت می کنم .
    به امید سفر خوش برای شما . ما در زمین منتظر بازگشت شما هستیم .

    ……………………….. ._._. RAM ._._. ………………………..

  271. سلام
    امیدوارم خوب باشید. حس می کنم از اون بالا بهتر میشه به خیلی چیزها فکر کرد. شاید هیچ وقت دیگه اینقدر از آدمها و زمینی ها که به نظر می رسه تنها فکرشون خرد کردن یکدیگره دور نباشید، و این سفر شاید شروعی باشه برای یک زندگی بهتر. سلام من رو به همه شگفتی های این عالم برسونید. من هم خیلی آرزو داشتم که جای شما بودم اما برای من چنین آرزویی چیزی نیست جز آرزوی محال. در هر حال برای شما آرزوی سعادت و کامیابی می کنم. من اگر جای شما بودم بیشتر به زمین نگاه می کردم شاید چیزهایی رو که روی زمین نمی فهمیم از اون بالا بهتر متوجه بشیم.
    ایام به کام

  272. My 6 and a half year old daughter thinks you are the bravest, most awe inspiring person in the world, she says she’s finally found a hero! Well done! If more women like you can give girls like mine the inspiration to carry out their dreams, no matter how big, then the world can only get better! I myself am soooooo happy for you! How proud those around you should be too! Good on you girl!

    Have a truely fabulous time fulfilling your dream and don’t forget souvenirs! ;)
    I would also like to add that you’ve kept at setting records: first person to blog from space, and most probably first person to take photos IN space and send to Flickr!

  276. Anousheh,
    I have two daughters who hear nothing but negative things about our political leaders these days. They need somebody to look up to, and women like you provide a goal and inspiration that is priceless. I wish you the best of luck on your space trip, return home safely and continue to be an idol. I salute you.

  279. Anousheh,

    From a native Dallasite, Congratulations and Salutations. Godspeed to you in orbit. You go in Peace for ALL Humankind.

    A year ago, I gave a book to Amir, by R. Buckminster Fuller, titled “Critical Path”. Bucky would be proud of you today were he still alive (at age 112!). The Global Sustainability of Humanity is being done a tremendous service by your endeavours in space, and I lament the deplorable coverage of your acheivement by the US media. I am travelling at the moment, not in Dallas, however Channel 8 (Belo) were paying respect to your pending launch over the weekend before I left town.

    Unfortunately, the current google result set leaves much to be desired. Your achievement is not being rewarded in the press, and unfortunately, we all know why.

    Gaze upon the firmament for us all, revel in the freedom and awareness of your unique position.

    I close with 3 quotes from Bucky:

    “God is a verb.”

    “Humanity is acquiring all the right technology for all the wrong reasons.”

    “Sometimes I think we’re alone. Sometimes I think we’re not. In either case, the thought is staggering.”

    Cordially,

    -TO

  281. Congratulations!! That’s awesome. I think it’s just wonderful. My family has been following this story and cheered this morning. My wife’s family lived in Tehran, pre-revolution, for two years and deeply loved it. And you’re a whole 10 days younger than my wife :)

    Enjoy your time and safe returns.

  285. به نام خداوند گردون سپهر فروزنده ی ماه و ناهید و مهر
    نمی دونم الان کجا هستید یا داریدبه چه چیزی نگاه می کنید؟ ولی امید وارم هر جا که هستید خوب باشید
    این نامه را برای شما می فرستم تا بگم که به شما افتخار می کنم, به خاطر اینکه یک خانم هستید, یک ایرانی هستید, یک الگو هستید, یک الگو برای تمام بانوان این مرز و بوم که بهشون بگید که یک خانم ایرانی بودن نشون دهنده ی محدودیت نیست یک خانم هم می تونه به اهدافش برسه با تلاش با پشتکار با زحمت با امید و اگر خودش واقعا بخواد همون طور که شما خواستید و تونستید .
    !! از رویا به واقعیت ! خیلی زیباست
    من هم یادم میاد از اون زمانی که توی مدرسه معلم ها می پرسیدند می خواهید در آینده چه کار شوید ؟
    همیشه می گفتم دوست دارم یک فضانورد بشم ولی خیلی ها باور نمی کردند که یک روز یک خانم بتونه به فضا بره ؟!ولی شما به همه ی اونها ثابت کردید که هر کسی با تلاش و پشتکار می تونه به اهدافش برسه
    واقعا از شما متشکرم واقعا به شما افتخار می کنم سعی می کنم از شما الگو بگیرم یا بهتره بگم دوست دارم که از شما الگو بگیرم به عنوان یک خانم یک فرد کامل چون زیستن رو به معنای واقعی درک کرده
    از ته قلبم برای شما آرزوی موفقیت نه تنها در سفرتون بلکه در تمام عرصه های زندگیتون می کنم .

  286. Ms. Ansari,
    Congratulations on your astronomical achievement! I hope you are well and safe while having the first space adventure of your life. I have admired other Persian women whose families left Iran when the theocratic government threated to stifle their achievements. I am certian you, like these I’ve known, are as proud of your advanced education in the United States as the traditions and early schooling from your native Iran. Of all these notable Persian/American women you are the most outstanding today. Can you please forgive us “americans” for wanting to claim you for our own?

    Peace to you and all who you meet on your journey,
    Annie

    P.s. Flags can both separate and unify. What would you wear on your shoulder to represent Earth or a Universal citizenship?

  293. when i read someone would spend 25mil dollar to go to space, i thought to myself, she/he must be crazy, because it must be better ways to spend that money…but today I realize, i was wrong. After reading all these msgs, i realized you have done
    something which is prizeless..you gave hope to so many people..
    i was helping my 10 year old daughter with math tonight and my motivation line for her was, look…if you want to be like Mrs Ansari, you need to work hard.. and yes, for the first time she listened to me… :-) Thanks… Javid iran… Merci….

    Fly me to the moon
    And let me play among the stars
    Let me see what spring is like
    On Jupiter and Mars
    In other words hold my hand
    In other words darling kiss me
    Fill my life with song
    And let me sing forevermore
    You are all I hope for
    All I worship and adore
    In other words please be true
    In other words I love you

    I just say that it is all because of Anoushe’s Money, nether her innovation, nor her brightness or clarity! It would be our proud, when she spends on a more useful matter than expensive childhood dreams…

    Comment by Mahdi — September 19, 2006 @ 3:25 pm

  316. Mahdi, sir. Whatever money is spent by a space tourist, it IS useful. The Space Program is part of the economy, giving jobs to hundreds of thousands of people. It is interesting to note that US consumers spend about the same on smoking as the entire NASA budget, each year. Be at peace with this flight. cyquick.wordpress.com

    امیدوارم که در زمانیکه توی فضا هستید لحظات خوب و خاطره انگیز را بگذرانید.
    من هم به آسمان و فضانوردی علاقه زیادی دارم و دوست دارم بتوانم در آینده در ناسا کار کنم.
    امیدوارم سفر شما باعث بشه که ما هم راحتتر بتونیم این آرزو را داشته باشیم که روزی به فضای بین کرات برویم.
    امیدوارم که بتونید از توی فضا برای ما هم توی وبلگتون مطلب بنویسید.
    و خیلی دوست دارم بتوانم یکروز شما رو از نزدیک ببینم و از اطلاعاتتون استفاده کنم.
    موفق باشید.

  321. Dear Ms. Anousheh Ansari,
    I am a student at Jasper High School in Plano, Texas. I am part of a journalism course that produces a show every tow weeks that is shown throughout the Plano Independent School District and all over our school. We would really love to do a story about you and your facinating journey into space with your permission. We were also wondering if we would be able to get an interview with you anytime after you come back to Texas. It would be a great honor to do this story. Good luck on your trip!

    Of coarse I don’t think that I be your relative. This is just a family name similarity. But I have big dreams as yours and I think this makes us a family, doesn’t it?
    I’ll be so glad if you write a book about yourself and answer so many questions about yourself.
    Let me ask one, and I hope you answer it.

    داشتم وآرزو می کردم که ایران پا به این عرصه بگذارد و شما به این آرزو جامع عمل پوشاندید.بحاطر این کار از شما سپاسگذارم.شما با این عمل جمله ی من میتوانم را در کالبد تمام خانمهای ایرانی دمیدید. لحظه ای که ایستگاه آی اس اس را صبح شنبه در آسمان رصد کردم از 420 کیلو متر پایین تر به شما وپرسنل ایستگاه سلام کردم.بدون هیچ اغماض و تردید میتوانم بگویم صبح باشکوهی برای من بود.در آخر برای شما آرزو میکنم که نتنها در این ماموریت بلکه در تمام مراحل زندگیتان به همراه خانوادیتان موفق و موید باشید. کامیار کیانبخت

  376. Dear Ms Ansari,

    With the greatest respect I write to you today to offer my
    congratulations for all your accomplishments, both as an Iranian (Persian?) and as a woman. At this time in our lives when our political leaders, our corporate leaders, our religious leaders, and even our sports leaders are
    acting out, it fills me with such pride to have you, a young,
    successful Iranian woman, achieving your dreams and lifting all of us up with you on your wonderful journey.

    I cannot imagine what was in your thoughts moments before you took off but I was crying tears of joys knowing you would be carrying the hopes and dreams of so many here on earth. The launch was an act of joy and you made believers out of those who may have given up on their dreams or have lost their sense of direction, especially our troubled youths. Your achievements in business and now in space exploration continue to brighten your star as a role model for young woman, in particular.

    I hope one day I will have the honor of meeting with you and shaking your hand. Thank you for staying true to yourself and pursuing your dream, you are truly a winner, and our shooting star.
    Kindest Regard,

    Cherie R. Safapou, Ph.D.,
    Founder and Chief Executive of
    Wise Wise Institute
