First Muslim Female Space tourist is now back on earth

pick of the week Ms. Ansari is the first female Muslim to view the Earth from weightlessness. (Prince Sultan ibn Salman ibn 'Abd al-'Aziz Al Sa'ud of Saudi Arabia was the first Arab, the first Muslim and the first member of royalty in space on Discovery in 1986). She returned to Earth on Friday after an 11-day extra-ordinary experience. You can read more about the trip from her blog. Did she say about how to pray in space? Hmm..

Well my friends, I must admit keeping good hygiene in space is not easy! Thereis no shower or faucet with running water. Water does not “flow” here, it “floats” — which makes it a challenging act to clean yourself. So what do people do up here, specially the ones staying for six months at a time…? They improvise!There are wet towels, wet wipes and dry towels that are used for cleaning yourself. Usually each person gets a wet towel a day and couple of dry ones. Each person has a personal hygiene kit where they keep their stuff like toothbrush, shaving kit, creams , etc. I got Dice-K’s kit so it had a razor and lots of shaving cream, but no makeup
