Proud Infidel ranting about the ongoing war against democratic and secular values (Don't fool yourselves)! Maybe a voice of sanity in a wide ocean of madness.

Muslims in space

[...]

A Russian rocket blasted off from a launch facility in Kazakhstan on Wednesday, carrying an American, a Russian and a Malaysian to the international space station.The Soyuz-FG rocket soared into a darkening sky above the Kazakh steppe.Aboard were Peggy Whitson of Beaconsfield, Iowa, who will be the first woman to command the space station, veteran Russian cosmonaut Yuri Malenchenko, and Dr. Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor, the ninth Muslim in space but the first from Malaysia. They will arrive in two days.

Dr. Shukor’s mission at the space station presents special problems, not only because he is a Muslim, but also because he will be in space during the holy month of Ramadan. To conform properly to his dietary restrictions and other rituals will require some tricky calculations, procedures which are not necessary for most Muslims.

Read the rest at Gates of Vienna

Lessee now....Space station going around the globe 15 times per 24 hours means 15 sunrises times 5 = 75 prayers towards Mecca. So if they attach a generator to the Muslim while he's revolving towards Mecca they can dump the solar panels. Islam at work, for a change...

This sounds so much like the start of a joke that I was waiting for the punchline!
