Muszaphar pulang ke bumi: Soyuz TMA-10 keluar dari ISS

KUALA LUMPUR 21 Okt. – Kapal angkasa Soyuz TMA-10 yang membawa angkasawan pertama negara, Dr Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor Sheikh Mustapha, keluar dari Stesen Angkasa Antarabangsa (ISS) kira-kira pukul 3.14 waktu Malaysia untuk pulang ke bumi.

Dr Sheikh Muszaphar yang pulang bersama Komander Fyodor Yurchikhin dan Jurutera Penerbangan Oleg Kotov dijangka mendarat di kawasan Arkylk di Kazakhstan, kira-kira 1,500km dari Moscow, Russia pukul 6.37 petang ini.

Sementara itu di Moscow, delegasi Malaysia termasuk pasukan penyelidik, kejuruteraan aeroangkasa dan perubatan telah bersiap sedia untuk menyambut kepulangan Dr Sheikh Muszaphar.

Timbalan Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak; dan Menteri Sains, Teknologi dan Inovasi, Datuk Seri Dr Jamaludin Jarjis akan menemui Dr Sheikh Muszaphar di Lapangan Terbang Chkalovky, berhampiran Star City malam ini sebagai penghargaan kepada angkasawan itu.

Pertemuan itu bagaimanapun dijangka hanya akan berlangsung selama 15 minit sahaja berikutan kesemua krew kapal angkasa perlu dikuarantin bagi proses pemantauan kesihatan.

Dr Sheikh Muszaphar berlepas dengan kapal angkasa Soyuz TMA-11 bersama Komander Peggy Whitson dari Amerika Syarikat dan Jurutera Penerbangan Yuri Malechenko dari tapak pelancaran Baikonur Cosmodrome, Kazakhstan pukul 7.21 malam waktu tempatan (9.21 malam waktu Malaysia) pada 10 Oktober lalu.

Sepanjang 10 hari di ISS, Dr Sheikh Muszaphar membuat kajian saintifik berhubung kesan mikrograviti dan radiasi di angkasa lepas terhadap sel dan mikrob serta uji kaji penghabluran protein untuk kegunaan industri. – Bernama

    Angkasawan Returns Safely To Earth

    From Abdul Rahman Ahmad

    MOSCOW, Oct 21 (Bernama) — After 11 days in space, Malaysian angkasawan Dr Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor Sheikh Mustapha returned to earth, marking the success of Malaysia’s first space mission and the country’s active participation in the space industry that was once a dream beyond imagination.

    The Soyuz TMA-10, carrying him and two other crew member, Fyodor Yurchikhin and Oleg Kotov, landed at the space drop zone in Arkylk, Kazakhstan, some 1,500km from here at about 2.37pm local time (6.37pm Malaysian time) after travelling three hours and 23 minutes from the International Space Station, ISS.

    His safe return was received with great relief and applause by the crowd at the packed Mission Control Centre, here. They included Malaysian Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and his wife, Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, and Science, Technology and Innovations Minister, Datuk Seri Dr Jamaludin Jarjis.

    High ranking officials of the Russian Space Agency, Roscosmos, including its Director, Anatoli Perminov, were also present to witness the landing.

    Others present were the angkasawan’s parents, Datuk Sheikh Mustapha Sheikh Shukor and Datin Zuraidah Sheikh Ahmad and his elder brother, Sheikh Ahmad.

    Immediately after the landing, a logo of the Malaysian angkasawan mission was affixed on the wall of the Malaysian Technical Control Centre, a symbol of Malaysia’s success in completing the mission.

    As the spacecraft undocked from the ISS at 11.15am local time, many prayed for a safe landing for the Soyuz TMA-10 as the impact from the fall would be great after travelling at a speed of 755 metres per second upon entering the earth atmosphere.

    But the impact was minimised after the parachutes were released from the spacecraft at a height of 10km before hitting the ground.

    Six helicopters were deployed to locate the spacecraft.

    The Director of the Malaysian Space Programme, Col Dr Zulkeffeli Mat Jusoh was at the landing site to take Dr Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor to a temporary medical centre to rehabilitate the Malaysian angkasawan from the microgravity he had experienced for the past 11 days while in space.

    The Malaysian angkasawan was later taken to Chakalovsky airbase near the Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Centre, Star City, here where a ceremony would be held to receive him by Najib.

    And the Malaysian angkasawan will stay in Moscow for the next two weeks for quarantine and rehabilitation before returning to Malaysia.
