Anousheh Ansari - Iranian spacewoman

I've been going through my archive of "stuff I really must blog about", and I found this one from back in March. And it's got even funnier since then.

Anousheh Ansari is an Iranian spacewomen. She might be described as a "Space tourist", having paid to go up (by making a massive donation to the X Prize foundation - in case you wondered why it's now called the Ansari X Prize!) but prefers the designation "spaceflight participant". Anyway, good for her, and I'd intended to put something up as a corrective to all the rubbish out there about how Islam is anti-science, medieval and all the rest of it.

Now here's where it gets funny. Here is Anousheh Ansari's Wikipedia entry. Here is a picture of Ms Ansari on the ISS:



Now the Wikipedia entry currently contains this (down at the bottom):

In 2009, Ansari was featured in the documentary film "Space Tourists" by independent Swiss filmmaker Christian Frei about billionaires who paid to ride to the International Space Station aboard Russian spacecraft.[39] The DVD of the film was released in 2011.

But back in March when I tagged it for blogging it had a little more on that story:

In 2009, Ansari was featured in the documentary film "Space Tourists" by independent Swiss filmmaker Christian Frei about billionaires who paid to ride to the International Space Station aboard Russian spacecraft. When the DVD of the film was released in 2011, an animated GIF of her from the YouTube trailer was made and distributed on the limited release social network Google +. The clip, which showed Ansari holding a water dispenser in front of her face and shooting water straight into her open mouth, was instantly popular for reasons unknown.

I think they could could have left off "for reasons unknown", but it's much funnier with the phrase there.

And because I would hate to leave my readers hanging, so to speak, here is the clip in question.

Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a twenty five foot
drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has
83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to
share it with someone!
