Step 1: Buy Space Ticket. Step 2: Blog

September 26th, 2006 by Larry Smith

I’m just back from the first annual Rocketbelt Convention — which will yield a very special treat shortly — and so space is on my mind. SpaceChick.jpg

That led me to the much-clicked space blog of Anousheh Ansari (it with the groovy space music buzzing in the background), the first woman to buy her own ticket to space, and probably the first space blogger.

Check out her Flickr photos, more for the novelty and rarity of someone shooting pics from a spaceship (and posting on Flickr) then for the high quality of the shots. For some reason I like this close up of Astronaut Ansari quite a bit.
