Saudi Prince

Kuwaiti blogger Mariam has a very compelling entry about Arabs in space.

In her post she mentions the names of the Arabs that have made it into space, including a Saudi prince, a Syrian and a Lebanese-American woman that died in the Challenger shuttle tragedy.

Mariam also suggests the possibility that there might be a Jordanian in space soon via a joint training program between Jordan and Russia. Here is the story.

I never heard of this space program before, but I’m hopeful that one day we will have a Jordanian astronaut! It really could happen.
