A document in time: Anousheh Ansari’s Space Blog

with one comment

Anousheh Ansari

Not many people can say they have been a space tourist, and blogged their experiences at the same time. In the previous weeks the news has been full of Anousheh Ansari, the first female space tourist who spent 20 million dollars on a trip to space. If you want to know how the space travel was as a personal experience for her, read the blog at http://spaceblog.xprize.org/

Even though the event has passed, and the newsbuzz is not as high as it was a few weeks ago, the blog still stands out as a very interesting chronological read about the experience she had. Something that can be read for years to come. Especially “Hello World”, posted on the 21st of September, is a fascinating read. “I’m finally here…” are the famous first blogging words of Anousheh from space. It’s one small step for a (wo)man, but one giant leap for the blogosphere.

The blog as a document in time. TV and Neil Armstrong are sooo old media… or?
