  9. Maybe this is my biggest dream; from the time I was born until now, to go to space, just like you. I have had a dream that someday I’ll be the first Persian who go space 😀 I’m happy that at last my dream comes true, not about me but about you coz we r all brothers. I read all your blog word by word. I’m imagining your situation, your feeling, your mood now. I can’t sleep; it’s soon just some hours that my dreams become true. You will go but my heart with you in each moment. I’ll pray for you, I’ll ask god to save you, I’ll wait for you to come back and tell me about everything you see there.
    Take care

  15. Anousheh Ansari, I haven’t yet read about you and your goals, but everything I have read in the last 7 minutes is enough for me to know that we have similar dreams. I am SOOOOOOOO happy for you to be going to space!! That is something I have always known that I will do!! I have always said ‘I will go to the moon before I die!’. My friends laugh at me, some wish me luck, others voice their disbelief, understandably, as you and I both know that they never will because that is what they believe! I will be following you Anousheh, on your 10 day vacation (I hope you’re staying at a 5 star!! hehe, pun intended) and whatever else it is that you will be doing!!! I love that you are a child at heart, SO AM I!! I would stand in line with the 10-12 year olds too!! And I am beginning to write a book that will prove to young people that having dreams and setting goals really DOES affect your life and future and all the things that can manifest if you just have faith and belief and desire! I wish you all the best with everything that you do! I know you are busy, I hope you get a chance to read this. I just can’t explain how passionate I am about all the things that you are doing and I can only hope that we may cross paths one day! хорошее везение! (good luck!)

    Hopping and wishing for you more success.

  18. To one who brings grace and honor to the best meaning of Human Being, Dear Mrs. Ansari,

    My wife, Deborah, and I wish you and the other Expedition 14 crewmembers a safe trip up; and in company with the Expedition 13 crewmembers, a safe return from the trip of a lifetime.

    Other Earth species can ride the rocket, live on the ISS, and return. But no other can communicate their experience. We look forward to reading your posts each day. Thank You for sharing.

    We hope you will let us ride with you, one of us in the twinkle of each of your eyes. 🙂

    With kindest regards, and sincere best wishes,

    Clevis & Deborah Jones

    Last night your TV conference was broadcasted on TV4 of Iran for the second time. My family and I watched it and enjoyed too much. We hope you have a successful space cruise with a lot of enjoyable moments. We have been proud of you. I am sure that your journey becomes the incunabula of more trips of residents of other countries. At last I cross my fingers for you and your partners.

  26. Although i’m very proud of having a compatriot like you but i don’t like to repeat exajurated words again,but instead i would like to recommend you to establish a special foundation in Iran to recognition the young talents & direct them to their real path that they love ” just like yourself”.For sure it’ll cover up all the country very soon & your graet name will be registered in our culture for ever.
    I would be glad to discuss more about this idea.

  37. i heard that u arent allowed to wear the iranian flag(without the allah that is). although not wearing the flag wouldnt make u less iranian, i do think its wrong for the americans and the russians to bring politics into space travel.

    anyways i do wish u all the best on ur amazing 10 day trip:) do take lots of pics and share them with us:)

  44. خانم انصاری عزیز
    خوشحالم که به سفری می روید که رویایش را داشته اید.
    امیدوارم دیگر انسانها نیز برای تحقق رویا هایشان تلاش کنند تا جهان بهتری داشته باشیم.
    متاسفم که بسیاری از ایرانیان به خرج شما افتخار می خرند. کاش دستی بالا بزنند و خود افتخار کسب کنند.
    نیز امیدوارم همان گونه که شما خود را جستجوگر خصوصی فضا و سفیر فضایی می نامید، آنها نیز شما را فضانورد ننامند.
    و باز امیدوارم رسانه های ایران به ویژه صدا و سیما به این نکته اشاره کنند که به مدار رفتن امروز شما وامدار کشور محل اقامتتان است تا کشور محل تولدتان.
    برایتان آروزوی سفری لذتبخش و بازگشتی به سلامتی می کنم.

  50. Dear Anousheh,

    Good luck and have fun with the launch tomorrow! We are actually here in Baikonour with you. We’re an international team of women scientists working on immune suppression in space. Our group is from UCSF, San Francisco and consists of Millie Hughes-Fulford (principal investigator), Chai-Fei Li, and me. Our project name is LEUKIN and Thomas Reiter will be activating our experiment in space. Maybe you can take a picture of him with our experiment for us!? We are also keeping a blog of our experiences through Moscow and Baikonour at It also explains the science of our project and has a link to a short video on our work. Check it out if you can! We’ll all be watching the launch tomorrow. Have fun up in space!

  56. Anousheh,

    Just a quick note to let you know how I feel. Honestly, I cannot describe it but I can say that you are the greatest Iranian lady.

    I really hope that your trip, beside everything else that can bring, will some day help us to clear all borders separating our little home into countries and let human beings feel they are all in brotherhood.

    Safe travels to you. I wish you the best from the deepest part of my heart.

  60. فقط 6 ساعت و 20 دقيقه ديگر تا پرتاب باقي مانده است و من به شدت هيجان دارم.
    طپش قلبم نامنظم شده، هيجان تمام وجودم را فراگرفته و به شدت بي‌قرار هستم. نمي‌دانم چگونه مي‌شود از بانوي متهور ايراني تشكر كرد كه با به خطر انداختن جان و زندگي شيرين خود در پي كسب افتخار براي مردم دنيا است.
    انوشه عزيز، تو به يك ملت و سرزمين تعلق نداري. تو متعلق به جهاني هستي كه فقر، جنگ و ناداني آن را به شدت تهديد مي‌كند. زمين زيباي ما هر روز آلوده‌تر و بيمارتر مي‌شود و من ايمان دارم كه سفر تو به فضا نقطه عطفي خواهد بود تا به همنوعان خود نه به چشم يك فرصت يا ابزار بلكه به چشم يك انسان نگاهي بياندازيم.
    سفير عزيز فضا، سفرت سلامت، راهت مداوم و اميدت سبز باد
    برايت لحظات خوشي در فضا آرزو مي‌كنم.
    راستي چه خوب خواهد بود اگر منشور معروف داريوش را در فضا براي مردم جهان بخواني
    ارادتمند شما

  63. God Speed to you on your journey to space and back. After viewing the interview on ABC this morning (9-17), I just had to find out more about this charming and brave woman.

    Just making your childhood dreams come true, is so great.

  66. As the mother-in-law of an young Iranian with the last name Ansari I just had to congratulate you for him. He is in basic training for the USAF in Texas and probably doesn’t know about you yet. I will let him and my daughter know about you ASAP.

  67. با سلام و درود
    من اولین بار که عکس شما را دیدم اصلا از هویت و فعالیت های شما اطلاعی نداشتم ولی حدس زدم ایرانی باشید و با کلیک روی عکس شما همه چیز برایم روشن شد. من از اعماق وجودم به شما افتخار می کنم و و اقعا شما را دوست دارم. امیدوارم همه ما ایرانی ها به این خودباوری ها برسیم. من هر روز اخبار مربوط به شما را مرور می کنم و در سایت قرار می دهم. من در سایت ایرانیان خارج از کشور خبر می زنم.
    امیدوارم شرایط آشنایی بیشتر انجمن با شما فراهم شود.
    با آرزوی موفقیت برای شما و همه ایرانیان با تمام وجود

  69. To the XPrize team: I believe the CountDown Clock is running too early.. it says launch should be in less than 7 hours (it’s 14:15 UTC now), but the launch is 04:08 UTC, which is in 14 hours?

    Anousheh, your dream comes alive in only a few hours from now. I wish you good luck and good inspirations up there. There is only one world and one big dream, freedom all over the world..

    Please inspire us and let us know what your next dream is, after your safe return home to earth.

    best wishes to Thomas Reiter and the crew on ISS, which are doing a tremendous job.

    Peter from Germany

  76. Hi Anoosheh,

    I’m really sorry to say this but unfortunately this very very very important launch of yours after 15 minutes hasn’t been showed on TV. I’m not sure if they show it at all. They could have been more respectful! I don’t know what they’re thinking. But You are important to the people no matter what they do. Have a nice space travel!
