Rantings from a few corporate types about life, technology, travel, guns, politics, and everything good in the world.

Women In Space

Monday, August 28, 2006

No, that's not the title of a movie your spouse wouldn't want you to watch on Spectrovision, it's about the first female space tourist, Anousheh Ansari. She's the co-founder of some digital dot thingamabob and is going to fork over $20M USD to ride on a Soyuz.

She can probably still afford it, even though I'd sure she's down from being the second richest woman on the Forbes list (behind the Queen of England, and I don't mean Elton John).

It's worth noting that we have an Iranian born US citizen riding on a 1970's technology rocket. Technology that was stolen by Soviet (remember the Evil Empire?) spys (remember McCarthy?) in the 1960's. And she's a muslim woman definitely not wearing a chadur-thingie.

America is a great country, and we have more boots than anywhere in the world, God bless us every one.

Reader bump and update: she's smoking hot too!
