Gulf News – Muslim astronaut to blast off during Ramadan

Kuala Lumpur: Malaysian authorities are hopeful that they may soon see the country’s first Muslim astronaut to fast in space next month during Ramadan. A Muslim doctor and an army dentist are being trained in Russia to vie for a slot in the 11-day space mission that starts on October 10, the Sunday Star newspaper reported. Other Muslims have ventured into space, but none during Ramadan. The two aspiring astronauts were chosen from thousands of applicants in the country.
