5km Venus fun Run 2019 (07.07.2019)

Our Venus Run is a 5 km Fun Run; a friendly race that involves running along the scenic Wetlands Park in Putrajaya that is safe away from road traffic with participants taking part for their own enjoyment rather than competition.

This Fun Run is an event organised in collaboration with Perbadanan Putrajaya and MySihat to encourage, inspire and motivate people of all ages and backgrounds within the Putrajaya and Cyberjaya community to improve their mental and physical health through running and exercise in a fun and creative way. We would like to promote public awareness of space exploration and science education to the parents, youth and our future generation.

We will hold a science fair on the event day demonstrating rocket launches and other fun STEM activities for your children and family to enjoy. There will be food trucks on site for coffee and breakfast. Do come by the Wetlands Park, take part and enjoy a fun-filled day with us...

Astronaut corps of malaysia

On the 10th of October 2007, a young Malaysian was successfully launched into space becoming the nation’s first Astronaut (Angkasawan). The Malaysian government had secured a seat on-board the three seater Soyuz capsule and blasted off from Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan.

It was a historic moment for the entire nation. We all held our breath as we watched our hopes and dreams ascend on a roaring column of fire towards space. The opportunity to go to outer space was given to all Malaysians. Through a selection process, more than eleven thousand shortlisted candidates chosen from the general public went through nine screening stages to become the sole Angkasawan.

Herein you will find excerpts and short stories from some of the most colourful and astonishing young candidates and like-minded individuals, vying for the coveted top spot of Angkasawan Negara. The top fifty-nine candidates of the astronaut programme are now all members of the Astronautical Association of Malaysia (AstroX) also known as the Astronaut Corps of Malaysia. This is their story and their journey to become the first Malaysian into space.
