  2. با سلام و درود بیکران به یادگار نسل آریایی در دیار غربت
    میدانم که میدانی غربت سخت است غربتی زمینی. انسان وقتی از آشیانه اش دور میشود لحظه را پا به پا میشمارد تا به آشیانه اش بر گردد جهان تاریک است مردمان لبهایشان به هم دوخته کسی از برادر خود نمی داند که در غربت به عشق وطن جان میدهدولی اکنون تو در غربتی کبریایی به سر میبری کهکشانی تاریک وزمین و زمینیان را همچون مردمک چشم مادران چشم انتظار گرد و کوچک میبینی . میدانم وقتی که میخوانی نوشته ام را لحظه سفر به یادت میا ید دوست داشتی زندگی دکمه برگشت داشت تا دوباره تکرار کنی آنچه میخواهی. به تو حسادت میورزم نه به خاطر رفتن به فضا بلکه بخاطر تاریکی و سکوت وقربتی را که با وجود خودت حس کردی آنرا.جمله در برابر عملت قاصر است من تو را خواهر بزرگ خودم میدانم و به خودم میبالم که خواهر گلی مثل تو دارم امیدوارم نوشته تنهایی مرا با مردمک زمینی و آریایی خودت بخوانی.به امیدروزی که کشورت ایرانزیبایی هایش را در صحنه بازی چشمانت به نمایش بگذارد.

  3. Everybody does know that NASA TV’s Media Channel is always better than the Public Channel, right?

    http://www.nasa.gov/multimedia/nasatv/index.html — Choose Media Channel

    Cool music video on International Space Station just ended.

    Deorbit and Landing coverage now.

  4. Is this finally goodbye?
    I hope not.

    Dear Anousheh, you have been like a breath of fresh air among the everlasting depressing news:)

    Though I am far from being a Space Freak, I enjoyed you company very much. I will never go into orbit… unless Scotty beams me up:)

    These days on your website I also “met” many interesting people, from all over the world who were sharing your enthusiasm or simply being themselves – I was just visiting Eric Jerpe’s website.

    Indeed you have galvanized many, specially among Iranians.

    In your new position, many things are going to be different -Everybody Will Be Watching: Is she defending this or praising that??? Where does she stand about x or y or z??
    You know it all:)

    I am sure you are smart enough to go through all the following criticism or excessive praise.
    If your native country has not given you the tools to get where you are, you certainly got all it’s hidden wisdom.

    Bon retour

  11. Dear Ms Ansari,

    Before spending money on the space travle perhaps you needed to spend the money in building schools, medical facilities, infrastructure, human rights organization centers, etc. in your home country Iran. Perhaps you need to use your influence to address the issue of drug addiction problem among youths of Iran, lack of hope among its citizens and current economic crisis?

    When was the last time you created an scholarship fund for your fellow Iranian students who are in financial difficulty?

    Your use of Iranian flag means nothing. It is just a self-glorification and unconscious falls nationalism manifestation. If you care about your people then go back and rebuild your country with the money you got.

    The interesting thing is that Iranian youth are more intelligent today and don’t buy into your type of gestures any more. You are not a role model for the Irnians you just have a complex of being a hero as an Iranian.

    Good luck with your marketing hype campaign.

    Best,

    Just an observer

    “..The interesting thing is that Iranian youth are more intelligent today and don’t buy into your type of gestures any more. You are not a role model for the Irnians you just have a complex of being a hero as an Iranian…”

    Don’t talk from the others’ side, perhaps you haven’t seen all these posts mostly from Iran.. Next time when you visit this blog first have glance to previous posts.. Jelouse people like you can’t see the others’s acheivements and happiness…Anousheh has experinced a thing you could never imagined..you didn’t even know what ISS is.. Also remember Iranian people don’t need you to be worried about them..

  14. Dear Anoush, Welcome Back. I am a business man in USA who has been trying to stay calm and admire what you have done quiety without anyone knowing.

    It upsets me that someone gives you advise about how you should have spent money on schools or this and that instead of your trip.

    Many people including myself are spending money on these sorts of activities, but no-one has been able to do what you have done.

    The effect of your travel will stay with hundreds of thousands of boys and girls around the world without any borders or natinality.

    You have given and shown them new possibilities and foresightness that no school and library can ever do for so many. The effect of your trip will be recorded in history and will be a turning point in the way young people can look into the future and dream for what is possible, Specialy for the young prople in IRAN.

    Wishing you and your loved ones happines in Life.

    Take Care.
    Sincerely;
    A.J.
    Iranian-American Citizen

  16. Ms Ansari,
    I am an American born businessman living in Nashville TN that has always dreamed of space travel. As a child I was able to tour a NASA facility with my family, so excited from that trip that I rcvd a plastic space helmet and telescope as a gift to watch the stars. I have fond memories of wearing my NASA helmet and looking thru the scope on clear summer nights with my family and friends. To this day I watch the sky, and fortunately my telescope is much better than the first.

    I wanted to drop a quick note of Thanks and Congratulations on a mission accomplished and safe a return from your trip! I had not heard of you prior to the past few weeks. I must say I have enjoyed your spirit and energy as you embarked on a fantastic voyage. Your efforts and blog have done wonders for average people like me around the world. I personally have enjoyed reading your log as it was written with sincerity and from a different perspective. I hope and am certain that you have energized generations of young people to reach for their dreams.

    As you know from being a successful business woman, other peoples personal agendas will often attempt to tear you down with insults and slurs when they have nothing else. Please don’t let the naysayers prevent you from continuing your path to open up the stars to us all. We need you.

    Sincerely,

    RM

  17. Thank you for describing your experience from your heart. I have often dreamed of going to space, and I always wished astronauts were more like poets or artists than scientists.
    I hope someday artists and musicians and poets and gifted wordsmiths will be able to relate their space travel to those of us Earthbound. Your blog is a gigantic step in that direction, Thank you again for your spirit filled words.

  19. To post no.11
    It is really sad that you “demand” charity from people who have the wits and the talent to get where they are today. She has earned her money by hardwork and is self made and can do as she pleases, who are you to suggest what she should be doing? what have you done instead of being jealous of someone who is successful and something you can never hope to acheive? Get the best out of yourself, work hard and you would have automatically contributed to the world, charity being just a tiny bonus over that. We should be grateful that she is sharing her wonderful experiences with everyone and inspiring everyone to follow their dreams! Thanks so much Anoushesh!
    ps: She does support a number of charities and foundations too!

  20. Your comments about the Cosmonauts and Astronauts working together made me think of what Carl Sagan wrote in his final chapter “Cosmos, Who Speaks for the Earth” “If we continue to the planets and the stars, our chauvinisms will be shaken further. We will gain a cosmic perspective. We will recognize that our explorations can be carried out only on behalf of all the people of the planet Earth. We will invest our energies in a enterprise devoted not to death but to life: the expansion of our understanding of the Earth and its inhabitants and the search for life. Should a time of real disarmament arrive before nuclear war

  21. Actually when I read these kind of posts who try to suggest the others a better way to spend their money, I think to myself what a selfish people they are. The question is why don’t they do it themselves and expect the other people to spend their money in charities? They can start even with $10 each month! Are they able to neglect going to restaurants,movies,swimming pool, buying new clothes,.. and spend that money for poor people?
    People like Anousheh have earned their money by hard work and spend a part of it to reach their goals. No one can blame her on what she has done. Anousheh has paid 20 million dollors to go to space, but why don’t you understand that this money will help the Russian space programs to continue.
    On the other hand, there are many rich people who spend their money in Casinos and no one blame them for that because they don’t go to space.
    Planning for social security , education and health is not duty of civilians, but governments are responsible for them. However anybody who is interested can help as much as he/she likes.
