Coming Home from Orbit

Filed under: Orbit,Personal Spaceflight — by Peter @ 5:42 am

Anousheh’s description of life aboard the International Space Station has been amazingly vivid and alluring. She is an excellent writer. In my 25 years in the space industry I have never seen this intimate level of communication.

Safe travel home Anousheh — the World is waiting to greet you!

-Peter H. Diamandis (Chairman, X PRIZE Foundation)


  1. Peter, I should say, that you are not the only one who thinks she is an excellent writer, we all have been enjoying her amazing descripotions of the situations and everything out there. Way to go Anousheh! We are all proud of you and inspired by your achievments!

  6. Congratulations on your successful trip upstairs. Most of the responses on your blog are rightfully very supportive, those very few negatives don’t seem to comprehend that you are opening up a vast future for all humanity rather than prolonging a dismal present for some. So give yourself several pats on the back. Maybe we will get to shake your hand at Xprize.

    Best Regards

  8. Anousheh,
    Safe landing, your blog is terrific, really enjoyed reading it.
    It has been a busy place at the ISS the last couple of weeks. Met Burt Rutan and Mike Melville at EAA AirVenture 2006 this summer at Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Dick Rutan was also present at the airshow.

  11. As soon as you start to read any of Anousheh’s blogs you are immediately trasported to the ISS and it feels like you are there with her and the rest of the crew! A a rare talent, and one which is in great hands as I am sure Anousheh will continue to use it to inspire and give hope to those who are looking for a ray of light.

    Have a safe landing Anousheh!

  14. I absolutely agree with you, Peter. If Anousheh writes a book, i’m definitely buying it! She’s very charming in her writings and I would like to see a book with maybe a few pages of photos that goes into much more detail about her training and journey than what could be blogged here.

    Comment by Robert — September 28, 2006 @ 7:30 am

  22. Dear Peter,
    Your note will be complete if we notice that the English is her second language. She is Iarnian and her native language is Farsi. I think her special view and wirinting talent is due to of her eastern origin. she is Iranian and we are honor about that.

  23. Anoush, Peter and everyone who collaborated,
    thank you, thank you so much to give us this opportunity to share with us every thought and every thing from Space with this unbelievable blog.
    I tried to follow in some way the previous three Space Explorers, but Anoush’s Space Flight has been incredible and it will remain in my mind and in my heart for the rest of my life.

    All the Best,
    Anoush, have a very soft landing and welcome back to Earth

  27. Dear Anoosheh,
    I always wanted to get out of Iran but it seemed impossible. After seeing you going to space I got the inspiration and now I know that I can get out of here. Love you sooo much.
    Have a safe trip back home

  28. سلام انوشه عزیز
    فردا روز بازگشت تو به زمین است…همان زمینی که سالها در ان زندگی کرده ای و کرده ایم…همان زمینی که با همه خوبی ها و بدیهایش از ان ماست…و همان زمینی که باید ان را دوست بداریم و از ان محافظت کنیم…بیشنهادی دارم بیایید زمانی که بر گشتید بنیادی را ایجاد کنید تا همه بتوانند برای حفظ این زمین عزیز و زیبا کوشش کنند و نگذارند تا از این وضعی که هست بدتر شود….زمین زیباست و نشاندهنده صلح و دوستی و ارامش همچنان که خود از بالا دیدی و گفتی…این صلح و ارامش را محافظت کنیم.

    Comment by Hadi — September 28, 2006 @ 9:10 am

  37. Yes, she’s a great writer. I dreamed of space many times, but I never could imagine things so clear, I never could feel it so near. I said to myself: Well, the mankind got to space for almost half a century, hundreds of astronauts and cosmonauts have flown there for free but none was so sensitive, so talented and so generous to share with us what he or she saw and what he or she fel up there. Anouseh added real value with her flight and this is a prove that privat spacetravel could bring lot of benefits for all of us. I guess she has broght an entirely new perspective about spacetravel, realy humanising it.
    Come safely home Anousheh, you did a great job up there!

    Comment by Dan (Bucharest, Romania) — September 28, 2006 @ 9:11 am

  38. Yes, Indeed, after weeks of foolowing all her news and some days of sharing all her moments and thinking of her constantly, we are all waiting for her safe return. She made many think of the possibnility of making their dreams come true. The realisation of dreams, takes us further than space. This is a window to eternity.
    I think those who have had the chance of following this magnificent event, should thank all those benind her flight. Thank you all.

  44. Dear Anooshe,

    I can not conceal my envy on your valued and farfetched success. I am so honored by hearing that one of most successful countrywomen of mine is now proudly journeying to the space. May God be with you and wishing you a very smooth and safe journey back to earth.

    Trust you will look at Universe from the different angle henceforth.

    Best wishes

    Comment by Avid — September 28, 2006 @ 10:13 am

  48. Peter
    I think the reason is that Anousheh is herself she didn’t forget her roots and she is incredibly pure and down to earth, I jsut get to know her through her blog. She taught a good lesson to those rich people who think they are very special or as Persian say taafteye jodaa baafteh…
    I wish her best luck in her life and a safe return. How wonderful is my feeling to think that we have someone like Anousheh and her family around.

    Comment by Nazila — September 28, 2006 @ 10:30 am

  49. Hi Peter,

    I couldn’t agree more. Anousheh captivating stories have been very descriptive and fun to read. She has captured many peoples hearts with her intriguing personal touch.

    Thanks to you all and I will be praying for safe travel.

  52. Dear Anousheh ,

    I don’t know why in 3 last days , whenever I read your blog , I’ve not found a new one , but today I encountered with all your writings from Sep. 26 . very , very interesting … you described every thing in such a way that I feel I’m there in ISS , with you , I smell burned almond coocies 🙂 , I feel the coldness of window when gazing at universe , and I try to open my eyes not to loose such a magnificent sight ….
    GOD … I really hope from my bottom of my heart to have a chance , even a moment , to see the universe from up there …
    when in the darkness of night , out of lights of this city , I’ve watch the sky , my spirit goes up there ….
    I think really we are all From STAR DUSTS , once first sparkles of human creation was up there … between stars …

    anyway , I hope you pass these last houres in ISS in the best way , and you and other crews have a safe and amazing
    re-entry …..
    lookforward to read your amazing expriences after your return ,

    you don’t know how much I like to to tell you more and more , and read or hear from you more and more …

    lots of love ,

    Comment by Zari — September 28, 2006 @ 11:05 am

  53. Exactly Peter, WOW her description is like a movie. Through the picture she gave I lived the experience. Amazing, really you are great Anousheh. I am sure if you write a book about your visit to space the book will be a phenomenon, and one of the best.

    Now I know I will miss these days, the moments I spent reading your blog are very beautiful, inspirational and informative. Safe return home, I will be imagining you returning, and will be waiting for when you tell us about your journey to earth.

    As I promised, I will paint for you 20 September; I named the painting “Space Dream”. Just I wish you will accept it, will you? It will be a great honor for me.

  55. God Bless You Anousheh,
    You write so beautifully and everyone who reads you feel they know you.May what you are experiencing there always remain within your soul so you never tire of sharing the joy and wonder of it with others when you return.
    Your reflections remind me of a hymn “How Great Thou Art”.
    If you know it please sing it there for all of us earthlings here.
    In case you don’t..these are the lyrics of one verse of the hymn ..maybe you can whisper it.
    “O lord My God when I in awesome wonder
    consider all the works thy hands have made
    I see the stars,I hear the rolling thunder,
    Thy power throughout the universe displayed
    Then sings my soul, my Saviour God to Thee
    How Great thou art ,how great thou art
    Then sings my soul my Saviour God to thee
    How Great thou art,How Great Thou Art.”

    Its a privillege to be able to write to you in space.I don’t believe this !!
    Good morning,goodevening,goodnight what do you say there ?
    Its getting to be night here in Kolkata in India and the biggest festival for people here is about to begin with a big bang tonight ..the Durga Puja festival.There will be plenety of lights and sound so watch out for the display tonight the opening night.

    With laughter and warms hugs to all of you UP there,

  66. انوشه عزیز

    اینک که تو در آستانه بازگشت به خانه هستی(چه لغت زیبایی برای سیاره زمین) ما آموخته های بسیاری از سفر تو در چنته خود داریم.
    ما فرا گرفته ایم جور دیگری ببینیم.
    ما یاد گرفته ایم عاشق خانه آبی رنگ غلتان خود باشیم
    تو به ما آموختی هدف هر چقدر بزرگ و دست نیافتنی, اما اگر بخواهیم به آن خواهیم رسید.

    انوشه عزیز

  79. Hello, Anousheh!

    You make me happy! I always have the dream to fly in space, when I’m children.
    I’m brazilian.
    Today, I’m a independent artist, and I love oriental music very much, I play Indian Tablas and make a fusion between orientals and and brazilian rhytms.
    I’ve make a song named “Poeira de Estrelas” ( dust of stars…) and you can listen in my page.
    If you listen this song in the space, it’s for me a big happyness, because is a manier to me to be in the space…

  82. Peter,

    I am sitting here at work wiping the tears from my face every day after reading Anousheh’s latest enrty. It is really embarassing, since I am a guy, but I have not been caught yet. Of course, I should not read this blog at work, but I just have to see if there was a new entry.

    I hope Anousheh chooses to become a driving force for space enterprenourship. She seems to have all the tools for it: charisma, financial support, supportive family and friends, and last, but not least, genuine enthusiasm. She really does believe in this stuff, I think.

    But even if she retires to a beach house on Maui, I will be glad to know that people like her can still exist.
