Teh Tarik, Roti Canai, Nasi Lemak in space

BBC News reported on 9th March that Malaysian Scientists have already conquered most of the technical hurdles involved in sending someone into space. But one major obstacle still needs to be overcome.

What's it?

Malaysians love food. Malaysia's National Space Agency is now working to make sure that Malaysian astronauts can enjoy their favourite food while in space. The program, a joint US-Malaysian research project, is to decide how best to handle the roti canai to zero gravity.

It is called Roti Canai in space.

Zero gravity means no weight added to the body? Good news for weight watchers?

The Star reported that the other program is called Batik in space. It further reported that by 2007, the first Malaysians will be launched into space.
