Angkasawan Negara di Arab Saudi

Dalam perjalanan ke pejabat KAUST

Pagi ini saya berada di Jeddah dan sempat berjumpa dengan Angkasawan Negara yang baru-baru ini selesai menunaikan ibadah Hajinya. Beliau sudah berada di Arab Saudi semenjak awal bulan ini, sibuk memberi taklimat di Riyadh dan juga di Jeddah. Beliau akan berlepas ke Jordan pagi esok untuk memberi taklimat di sana pula.

Menandatangani buku tetamu

Pagi ini kami membuat lawatan ke pejabat King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST www.kaust.edu.sa) dan juga pejabat Malaysian Consulate di Jeddah. Kami sedang cuba mereliasasikan beberapa projek antarabangsa yang akan membangunkan industri aeroangkasa di rantau ini.

Bersama kakitangan Consulate

Kami berharap untuk berjaya supaya generasi akan datang dapat meraih keuntungannya...

Malam Astronomi Adil Adha

Kakitangan Aerospace Edu , Sam Gibbs, Prof. Nor Azam dan saya

Sempena sambutan Aidil Adha, Aerospace Education Sdn Bhd telah menganjurkan Malam Astronomi di APIIT Smart School. Prof. Nor Azam Md Nor dari Universiti Sains Malaysia telah memberi taklimat yang bertajuk Pengenalan kepada Astronomi. Selepas itu giliran saya pula untuk bercakap tentang Program Angkasawan Negara. Video latihan centrifuge semasa proses pemilihan telah disiarkan kepada para hadirin yang terdiri daripada murid-murid sekolah dan juga ibubapa mereka.

Memberi taklimat

Disebabkan oleh keadaan cuaca yang tidak mengizinkan, aktiviti mencerap bintang terpaksa dibatalkan. Sebagai aktiviti gantian En. Sam Gibbs telah menyiarkan tayangan 3D yang mengambarkan bentuk permukaan bulan dan juga planet Marikh. Ia sememangnya menakjubkan dan banyak perkara kami dapat pelajari dari tayangan tersebut.

Ok belajar rajin-rajin ya...

Sehingga lain kali, Selamat Hari Raya Aidil Adha diucapkan kepada semua.

Aidil Adha Astronomy Night

Aerospace Edu Staff, Sam Gibbs, Prof. Nor Azam and I

To celebrate Aidil Adha, Aerospace Education Sdn Bhd recently organized an Astronomy Night at the APIIT Smart School. Prof. Nor Azam Md Nor from Universiti Sains Malaysia gave a talk on Introduction to Astronomy and I followed with a presentation about the Angkasawan Programme. The crowd which consist of schoolchildren and parents were exposed to video clips of the centrifuge training we had to undergo during the selection process.

Giving my talk

We moved on to the main event which was to study the skies but due to low cloud cover, we were unable to do so. However Sam Gibbs showed us a great 3D presentation of the surface of the moon and mars to make up for the poor weather. In the end everyone enjoyed themselves and had a great time.

Ok study hard please...

Until next time Selamat Hari Raya Aidil Adha to all....
