The first blogger from space
Her name is Anousheh Ansari, an American businesswoman, who has become the first female space tourist. Previously there have been male tourists to space, but she's the first person to blog from space.
Ansari who holds a master's degree in engineering has given some candid insights about her space adventure through her space blog.
On September 12, she writes, She was born in Iran and at the age of sixteen had migrated to the United States with her family. She had a dream.. She's certainly living the American dream in the land of dreams which provide the best opportunities to realize your dreams. She's worked hard and is an inspiration to anyone who sees the sky as the limit.
The price of her 10-days dream is $20 million. Only a privileged few are going to realise this dream but as Ansari has experienced it is truly an amazing journey, unfathomable when you grounded on this earth.
