They Aced It!

Pictured Left to Right: Tuan Hj Zamani Zakaria (GM-Head of MyICMS886), Mr Sangat Singh (Advisor to Angkasawan RAE Project), Angkasawan Dr Faiz Khaleed, En Ahmad Razif Ramli (Head-Technology & Standards Dept) , Datuk Dr Halim Shafie (Chairman, MCMC), En.Mohd Nazir Osman (Technology & Standards Dept) , Angkasawan Dr Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor, Dr. Mustaffa, Deputy Director General, National Space Agency, En Mohd Fairos B Asillam (ANGKASA) Cik Roslina Hussain (ANGKASA). Absent were Angkasawan Finalist Vanajah Siva, & Mohd Faiz Kamaluddin (Both candidates passed the RAE but were not at the presentation ceremony)

Yup! They did, all six candidates who participated in the RAE Special Sitting for the Angkasawan Candidates and Angkasa Officials got through their RAE without any hitches. Seeing that RAE was not actually rocket science (Pun intended!), we wish godspeed to all involved in seeing this Angkasa Initiated project through.
At the present moment, both Angkasawan Elect, Dr Sheikh & Dr Faiz are already in Moscow, probably getting used to potatoes & vodka! OK, not the vodka part...but definately getting used to Mockba diet! Hopefully we will also get their callsign soon, so boleh panggil panggil mah . . .

So, if you hear of a new callsign, most likely, it could be either of the four! Cheers...

Martsnews.blogspot would like to thank Mr.Sangat Singh who shared this photo with us.

The gentleman sandwiched between Fairos and Roslina is Dr. Mustaffa, Deputy Director General, National Space Agency. By the way his call sign is 9M2MDS
