The Trip Up

Filed under: Space Explorer — by Anousheh @ 11:57 pm

Hi everyone,

It is about 11:30 GMT here on ISS. It looks like my first entry from space made it down there.. Amazing, isn’t it…?

So first let’s take care of a few housekeeping items… I do not have realtime access to email. The email process is a batch process so it happens three times a day. I will do my best to get at least one entry in per day.

I do not have access to a web browser so I cannot read all your comments. I get some of your questions and greetings forwarded to me and I know that many people are sending their well wishes and words of inspiration. You cannot imagine how happy you have all made me, by sharing this experience with me.

Every time I read a message saying how someone has been energized and motivated to pursue their dreams, I get Goosebumps. I get all teary eyed when I read how a young girl in Mashhad is watching me and is motivated to one day become an Astronaut.

I know all of you will realize your dreams, if you want it bad enough in your heart and are willing to work hard and sacrifice for it. I will be reading every single one of your messages personally, when I return… So please continue to write to me.

Now that we have taken care of that, let’s talk about the ride up here, as I promised…

Well I took a motion sickness pill on the launch pad which was great. When we got to orbit I felt fine and I was able to look out the window as the world kept spinning around us, or more correctly I should say, we spun around the world.

They usually say you should not do that the first day because it will make you sick. Well… I just couldn’t resist…

I felt fine and even had some crackers and cookies for dinner before I went to bed. Our time was shifted back so we were basically scheduled to go to sleep about 6 pm and wake up about 3:00 am.

The first night we were all so tired that going to sleep early was no problem. Ah! I forgot to mention… when the Soyuz is put in orbit to chase the space station, it spins on its axis the whole time. The trip to the station takes close to 48 hours…

Now I knew why we had those dreaded spinning chair trainings.

Misha told us that it would make us feel better if we would hang our sleeping bags from the ceiling of the Habitation Compartment and put our head in the center of the hatch. This way we would be close to the center of mass and would feel less of the spinning effect.

So I followed his direction and hung my sleeping bag upside down and slipped into the bag. L.A. hung his from the ceiling the other way and did the same thing. Misha went into the descent module to sleep.

I was taking a mental picture of how we must look in our sleeping bags and it reminded me of Bats who sleep hanging upside-down from their cave ceiling. Well here we were in our tiny cave, floating about the Earth and heading to ISS.

I decided to be on the safe side and took another motion sickness pill before going to sleep. These pills actually make you sleepy so I figured it would help me go to sleep faster. I was able to locate my iPod in my bag and I was a happy camper… I put on my headphones and went to sleep in my Bat sack ;-) I did not know how I would react to sleeping while floating. You are not in touch with any surface and I figured it would be kind of strange, but I loved it. It made me feel very calm, like I was floating on the surface of a lake.

So far so good… The next morning when I woke up, I was so excited I slipped out of my bag quickly and flew head down to the Descent Module and flipped around and flew right back up to the Habitation Compartment. As soon as I stopped I realized that what I did was not a good idea! I felt my internal organs doing a cha-cha inside my belly…

I stopped and tried to minimize my movements. I basically become a mummy from that point forward. I only did very small slow movements and even that would make me feel really sick…

On top of that, I was having two more space flight symptoms. The first one was lower back pain. Basically your spine stretches because of the fluid and you get taller. I was happy about being taller but the pain was not fun.

The second symptom was fluid shift to the head. Because gravity is not there to help the blood that is pumped by your heart go down to your feet, it accumulates in your head, so your face gets puffy and red and you get a headache. It sort of feels like when you do a headstand for a long period of time.

So here I was with a Big Headache, pain in my back and nausea. I told myself, “This is not a good start — what if I feel like this the entire time!” After vomiting a couple of times, I decided to go for the big guns…

The flight surgeon had packed some motion sickness injections to be used as needed. I figured I really needed it, so I asked Mike and Misha to give me a shot. They consulted on the instruction given to them and decided on half of the medication to be injected. Mike prepared the syringe and Misha administered it. They were both so worried about me and wanted to do something to make me feel better. I felt bad for ruining their first Soyuz flight…

It did not take long for the injection to put me to sleep. Misha prepared my sleeping bag for me. This time I asked to be rolled in a small area so I could be in a fetus position. It seemed to make my lower back pain better. He also recommended that I have my head pressed against one of the cargo bags to help with my Headache. I rolled up in my sleeping bag with my head pushed against the cargo and spent most of the day sleeping. I would occasionally open my eyes and see Misha and Mike moving about. They asked me couple of times if I wanted to eat anything or needed anything. they checked my temperature and made sure that I was not getting worse.

So the second morning I woke up and felt a little better but still not well enough to eat or move around. I decided I should take another injection. And this time, after Misha and Mike had consulted with the flight surgeon, they gave me a full dose of injection.

I was really disappointed in myself… Here I thought I was always meant to be in space and now that I finally was, I was so sick I couldn’t even look out the window… I kept telling myself “Stop this nonsense… You are stronger than this… Get ahold of yourself.. this is all in your head, you can stop it…”

I was getting really impatient and wanted to get to the station. Somehow I thought I would feel better, but everyone told me that when you first enter the station, you feel bad since you are going from a small volume to a large volume.

I did not care, I just wanted to get out of my little Bat sack and get in a brighter, bigger place. Misha told me that I have to suit up for the docking. Right after I got my injection, they helped me get into my space suit and got me strapped in my seat.

The docking process takes a long time. After docking, a leak check is done for the docking hatch area to make sure there is no depressurization. It usually takes close to two hours. I kept dozing in and out as Mike and Misha went through the docking procedure.

I was wide awake on the approach and watched us inch our way closer and closer to the Station. I was so excited. Every inch we were closer I felt better, until we were finally docked.

After a while I decided to get out of my seat and take my suit off. I knew there would be cameras as we entered the station and I did not want to look like a sick dog. As I took my spacesuit off I was feeling much better. I even felt hungry and ate a few crackers.

The time went by really slowly, but finally the moment arrived and they were ready to open the hatch. Mike and Misha called me closer and told me to take a good whiff because this would be the first time I would smell “SPACE.”

They said it is a very unique smell. As they pulled the hatch open on the Soyuz side, I smelled “SPACE.” It was strange… kind of like burned almond cookie. I said to them, “It smells like cooking” and they both looked at me like I was crazy and exclaimed:”Cooking!”

I said, “Yes… sort of like something is burning… I don’t know it is hard to explain…”

By this time Jeff and Pasha were ready for us and opened the hatch from the other side and hugged us and welcomed us to the station… As soon as I stepped on the station I felt like I was home… I felt 100 percent better… I had a hard time keeping myself from smiling… I could not believe it… I made it to my destination… I was finally home :)

And the rest you probably saw on NASA TV ;-)

until next Blog… have a peaceful day :)

  1. Good morning! I enjoyed reading your latest blog. I just left a comment on your Sept 21st one when I saw this. I would’ve taken lots of motion sickness pills as I have terrible travel sickness when I dont take one before an airplane trip hahaha! Ugh! I amnot sure about having them injected though. I am scared of needles! Mustve been something else to sleep upside down!

    Glad you got there safe and sound!

  4. Hello Anousheh,
    Thank you for your postings from the space. You are one tall human being, very tall indeed.
    If possible, on your way back home, please take a movie of the Soyuz as it spins around its axis; so that from the window we see the space as it seems to spin around you. Of course that is if Soyuz spins the same way, on its way back earth.
    Wish you happy times and a super-safe return.

  5. Anousheh jan:

    As a scientist/engineer, as a mother of two girls, as someone close to your age, as an Iranian, as an American, as a speci(wo)man on earth, as a hu(wo)man, you make me PROUD.

    The feeling of peace you have described is magnificent. It clearly shows that you have peace within to be able to extend it outward in such manner as you have. IMO, if you lived in Iran (instead of the US), or anywhere else on Earth, and having had a tiny fraction of the money (which you’ve earned with hard work and incredible sharp wits), you’d still feel the same kind of peace. IT’S WITHIN YOU. You would simply extend it to others in a different way. Your mother and grandmother and other women who have inspired and supported you to realize this peace each deserve an out of this world ovation - So do thousands of other good mothers/daughters/sisters/female friends, throughout the centuries….

    And now on a less serious note -
    You went smooth bala dokhtar :)) come back the same way…
    If you ever decide to have kids, I’ll fly anywhere to babysit them. When they get older, I’ll teach them thermodynamics and quantum physics and if need be, karate ;) but I have a feeling you’d do just fine teaching them yourself….

    Thanks to Peter, Hamid, Amir, and other great men who support great women.

    Your friend among millions more,

  7. Dear Anousheh,

    Salam… and “Hi” again! Haleh shoma chetoreh? :) I’m following your progress each day because I’m so excited to hear about space and your adventure! Thank you for describing everything–the “smell” of space, the way sleeping feels like floating, and hanging like a bat,. listening to your iPod. I can really imagine a picture of this. Do you have anything to read while you’re on your vacation? I hope you feel better and are not sick anymore. I think you are an amazing person to go up there and talk to us down here. I feel like I am on the adventure with you and am very proud. Thank you for bringing this to us all! I am learning a lot about space exploration already. Khodahafez :)

  9. Great job on the blogs. I hope someday to go into space by orbital means (i am not too interested in sub-orbital flight).

    I got up at 6am New Mexico time this morning and watched you pass by almost overhead. The ISS was about as bright as Jupiter (thanks to the new solar arrays) and I was thinking about you and waving to you. I would have yelled “hi” also but I did not want to wake up the neighbors.

    I hope you had your nose pressed to the window to look back at me. ;)

    have fun, you’re doing good!

  10. Dear Anousheh,

    I wrote to you before, but I can’t find it. I’m 9. And just like you, I live in DFW area. I’ve been reading your blog and It’s pretty cool. And since you’re up there, maybe I can go someday, too. When you were hanging from the ceiling, did you get dizzy? I’d be happy to find out.

    I hope I get to meet you sometime. Be safe!

  11. What a pleasant read of your impressions of the trip to the ISS and of finally boarding.
    You mention the ‘talk’ about ‘motion sickness’. One aspect that was of interest - the ‘crackers’ were they salted? I recall from my navy days how the ’salted’ crackers/chips would settle queasy stomachs.

    Looking forward to your next message from space.

  12. Hello Anousheh,
    I am grateful that you decided to write the space blogs. It has been both informative and exciting reading! I don’t think that astronauts and scientists have the point of view that most people on Earth have and which you share: To most of us forever Earth-bound folk what you are experiencing is an awesome wonder! About the Atlantis, one of the astronauts (Piper) was showing motion sickness during interview after they all landed. I was delighted to learn that she was feeling fine later. So you be careful up there and on your return. And keep in touch! Godspeed and God bless,

    Hassan

  13. Hello!
    I unfortunately missed the live NASA coverage, but I saw the recording of the launch. It is a lot more unpleasant when you know something about the people inside. Usually we take it for granted.
    It’s cool how you describe the effects of microgravity. People usually think it’s like floating in water. I always knew it’s a lot worse, since I also wanted to go to space for as long as I can remember. I read a lot about it. Who knows, maybe I’ll get lucky one day, like you did. We can just all hope space travel will become more available.
    I hope your motion sickness will decrease, keep us well informed. After all, you’re a civilian and a lot more “in contact” with the ordinary people.
    I want you to know that you are an inspiration to me, a male medical student who has a hard time with everything. :)

    There is just one thing that would be very cool. I guess you must have some sort of a video recording device and a whole bag of flash memory. Do some experiments. Like try spinning a sphere of water with a stream of air from an ordinary straw, or something like that, to see how it will spit out a fragment (like Earth spat out the Moon). Fluids in microgravity are awesome.
    You’re an “ordinary human being” ambassador in space, so people are interested in you.

    OK, this is enough. I will keep watching ISS on the sky whenever I can. There is a fly-over in two days, I hope there’ll be no clouds.
    Say hello to your crew.
    Bye!

  17. Hi Anousheh!

    I’m from Winnipeg, Canada. Congratulations on making it to ISS. I watched your launch and docking on NASA TV and it was very exciting. It’s a dream of mine to make it to space one day.

    Spaceflight has been my favorite hobby for years and watching the ISS construction amazes me to see how countries can get together for a common goal. I really liked your comment about the beauty of our planet. Hope you have a great time up there and I wish you, Jeff and Pavel a safe journey home. Looking forward to watching more of your journey on NASA TV.

  18. Hi Anousheh :)
    It so great to read you , you tell it like it is, never before it was accounted for, see for the first time, I find out that your Soyuz ship spins around itself, that you sleep inside a bat sack, that you have to take motion sickness injecton, all element that we can relate to, and feel for you. Thank you for brigning too so many, an actual revelation in near real time, of this beautiful experience your are sharing with the people looking up to you from the blue planet, expressing its most beautiful hues of blues in your eyes, and in your heart :)

    Be well in zero g, and keep your smile…have a beautiful time!

  19. My friends laugh at me when I tell them that I’m going to visit outerspace some day. Sometimes I think I’m being ridiculous too. After reading about your adventures, I have renewed hope. Thank you.

  20. Dear Anousheh:

    I am so proud of you as a human being, a woman, and Iranian. You courage is admirable. The day you went to space I was in IT mgmt conf in Salt Lake City. I was sitting at a table with other participant and they asked me where I amfrom. For the first time in last 25 years that I have been here when I siad I am of Iranian origin, they gave me a resspectfulllook and mentioned you as the first Iranian-American woman going to Space.

    I wish you a safe trip back home. I will follow your trip, ans may be someday meet you in person in Dallas.

    Regards,
    Azadeh Kojoori

  21. Anousheh,

    Your reports from space are quite unique and humanistic. You cause the reader to feel that they are along for the ride with you as never described by the typical professional astronaut or cosmonaut. The description of the smell of “space” was insightful - a “burned almond cookie.” I, as certainly countless others around the globe, deeply appreciate the time and effort you put into blogging from the space station. I will look forward to reading more of your reports and sharing them with others of like-mind.

    Enjoy the “Overview Effect” to the greatest extent possible!

  22. Dear Anousheh

    Sorry about the sickness, I felt like this once before landing at JFK Airport, I got a tip for u called Valsalva maneuver which is any attempted exhalation against a closed glottis or against a closed mouth and nose.The Valsalva maneuver is used as a pressure equalization technique by scuba divers and airplane passengers to avoid barotrauma and discomfort inside their ears when they move to a higher pressure breathing environment.

    You could have become a good writer, I felt as if I was with you all the time when I red your blog post.

    It is so nice to see Misha nad Mike look after you, you are lucky to have them on board, especially Misha is so sweet.

    Bless you

    You came from night & went to the Sun in Northwest.
    very beautiful,
    it would be wonderful & interesting to see earth when day & night aparted by a line.

    I don’t know you saw us or not but all thought that you were watching us on that time.

  27. Anousheh,
    Congratulations on the trip! Thanks for letting us know so much about your trip and allowing us to share your experiences. Last year I put together a team and created Empire Space Transportation, Inc. to facilitate the movement of people and cargo to and from space (the job Soyuz does now). You have re-energized the whole team down here with your fantastic trip. We all want to go, and go now!

    Thanks again for everything, may God bless you and your family always.

  30. Dear Anousheh, I’m sending this comment from Tehran/Iran, local time 5:35 a.m. We saw the ISS carrying you from 5:13 to 5:15 a.m . when we were on the roof. ( My Mom (Mahnaz), my brother (Amin) & me ( Pooyeh ). Wow ! we are so exited, I can’t explain exactly my feeling now!
    We are so proud of you. Wish you be healthy & successful in your very beautiful & interesting space trip. Hope you return safely full of great experiences.
    Kiss & hug dear Anousheh. Hope to see you in Iran :)

    الان ساعت 5:30 دقیقه صبح به وقت تهران.قرار بود ایستگاه فضایی ساعت 5:13تو آسمان ایران دیده بشه.من برای اینکه ایستگاه رو بهتر ببینم از روز قبل به یکی از روستاهای اطراف رشت اومدم.از ساعت 5 بیدارم که اون نوری که انوشه انصاری داخلش قرار داره رو ببینم.انوشه که حالا دیگه واسم غریبه نیست. اینقدر مطلب در موردش خوندم وشنیدم که حالا شده یک اشنا.اما هوا ابریه. یک ستاره دیدم که نمی دونم خودش بود یا نه.ساعت 5:21 غمگین به داخل خونه برگشتم. ناراحت از اینکه همیشه ابرا نمی زارن من اتفاق های مهم آسمونو ببینم

  32. Reading through the half of this post I was so disappointed with your sickness during the flight but cheered up again after reading till the end. It must be a great experience for you! May be a painful one but many of us will gladly endure it to taste the smell of space, as u did :). The analogy of almond and cookie is so down to earth… Wishing u a happy stay!!

    Comment by Nasser — September 23, 2006 @ 2:54 am

  33. Dear Anousheh:
    I am so proud of you ,
    انوشه جان میخواستم اینگلیسی بنویسم ولی دیدم این احساس عشق ایرانی رو شاید نتوانم با جملات لاتین بیان کنم.
    من در تهران زندگی میکنم و 22 سالم هست از وقتی که در مورد هدف شماو ارزوهاو زندگینامه شما تحقیق کردم شمارا به عنوان الگوی تمام عیار خودم در زندگی انتخاب کردم مخصوصا همین چند لحظه پیش وقتی شما رو دیدم که در ایستگاه فضایی بین الملیی از فرازایران گذشتید (مثل یک ستاره پرنور پارسی) به خودم خیلی افتخار کردم .
    قلبم با موشکهای نامرئی عشق به اهداف شما از سینه ام داشت کنده میشد و گریه ام گرفته بود من خیلی کمم معولا احساس میشم وگریم میگیره مگه فقط در مورد بستگان نزدیک خودم ولی وقتی گریه ام گرفت فهمیدم شما را که در این مدت کمی که میشناسم (حدود دو ماه )جزو معدود افرادی هستید که در قلب من جای گرفته اید
    حتی قصد دارم تمام اهدافم را با شما یکسان کنم فقط از شما میخواهم حتما بعد از اینکه به سلامتی به زمین برگشتید یک قسمت سایت خودتان را برای ما که شما رو به عنوان الگوو اسطوره برگزیده اایم اختصاص بدهید
    تا ما هم مثل شما بتوانیم از استعدادهای نهفته خودمان استفاده کنیم و برای همه دنیا مفید باشیم
    من قبلا انسانهایی مثل انتونی رابینز و افراد موفق دیگری را به عنوان الگو برگزیده بودم ولی الان دیگه فقط شما الگوی من هستید. خواهش میکنم با راهنمایی های خود مارا به موفقیت ثوق دهید.
    می بخشید خیلی طولانی شد.

    The Trip Up

    Filed under: Space Explorer — by Anousheh @ 11:57 pm

    Hi everyone,

    It is about 11:30 GMT here on ISS. It looks like my first entry from space made it down there.. Amazing, isn’t it…?

    So first let’s take care of a few housekeeping items… I do not have realtime access to email. The email process is a batch process so it happens three times a day. I will do my best to get at least one entry in per day.

    I do not have access to a web browser so I cannot read all your comments. I get some of your questions and greetings forwarded to me and I know that many people are sending their well wishes and words of inspiration. You cannot imagine how happy you have all made me, by sharing this experience with me.

    Every time I read a message saying how someone has been energized and motivated to pursue their dreams, I get Goosebumps. I get all teary eyed when I read how a young girl in Mashhad is watching me and is motivated to one day become an Astronaut.

    I know all of you will realize your dreams, if you want it bad enough in your heart and are willing to work hard and sacrifice for it. I will be reading every single one of your messages personally, when I return… So please continue to write to me.

    Now that we have taken care of that, let’s talk about the ride up here, as I promised…

    Well I took a motion sickness pill on the launch pad which was great. When we got to orbit I felt fine and I was able to look out the window as the world kept spinning around us, or more correctly I should say, we spun around the world.

    They usually say you should not do that the first day because it will make you sick. Well… I just couldn’t resist…

    I felt fine and even had some crackers and cookies for dinner before I went to bed. Our time was shifted back so we were basically scheduled to go to sleep about 6 pm and wake up about 3:00 am.

    The first night we were all so tired that going to sleep early was no problem. Ah! I forgot to mention… when the Soyuz is put in orbit to chase the space station, it spins on its axis the whole time. The trip to the station takes close to 48 hours…

    Now I knew why we had those dreaded spinning chair trainings.

    Misha told us that it would make us feel better if we would hang our sleeping bags from the ceiling of the Habitation Compartment and put our head in the center of the hatch. This way we would be close to the center of mass and would feel less of the spinning effect.

    So I followed his direction and hung my sleeping bag upside down and slipped into the bag. L.A. hung his from the ceiling the other way and did the same thing. Misha went into the descent module to sleep.

    I was taking a mental picture of how we must look in our sleeping bags and it reminded me of Bats who sleep hanging upside-down from their cave ceiling. Well here we were in our tiny cave, floating about the Earth and heading to ISS.

    I decided to be on the safe side and took another motion sickness pill before going to sleep. These pills actually make you sleepy so I figured it would help me go to sleep faster. I was able to locate my iPod in my bag and I was a happy camper… I put on my headphones and went to sleep in my Bat sack ;-) I did not know how I would react to sleeping while floating. You are not in touch with any surface and I figured it would be kind of strange, but I loved it. It made me feel very calm, like I was floating on the surface of a lake.

    So far so good… The next morning when I woke up, I was so excited I slipped out of my bag quickly and flew head down to the Descent Module and flipped around and flew right back up to the Habitation Compartment. As soon as I stopped I realized that what I did was not a good idea! I felt my internal organs doing a cha-cha inside my belly…

    I stopped and tried to minimize my movements. I basically become a mummy from that point forward. I only did very small slow movements and even that would make me feel really sick…

    On top of that, I was having two more space flight symptoms. The first one was lower back pain. Basically your spine stretches because of the fluid and you get taller. I was happy about being taller but the pain was not fun.

    The second symptom was fluid shift to the head. Because gravity is not there to help the blood that is pumped by your heart go down to your feet, it accumulates in your head, so your face gets puffy and red and you get a headache. It sort of feels like when you do a headstand for a long period of time.

    So here I was with a Big Headache, pain in my back and nausea. I told myself, “This is not a good start — what if I feel like this the entire time!” After vomiting a couple of times, I decided to go for the big guns…

    The flight surgeon had packed some motion sickness injections to be used as needed. I figured I really needed it, so I asked Mike and Misha to give me a shot. They consulted on the instruction given to them and decided on half of the medication to be injected. Mike prepared the syringe and Misha administered it. They were both so worried about me and wanted to do something to make me feel better. I felt bad for ruining their first Soyuz flight…

    It did not take long for the injection to put me to sleep. Misha prepared my sleeping bag for me. This time I asked to be rolled in a small area so I could be in a fetus position. It seemed to make my lower back pain better. He also recommended that I have my head pressed against one of the cargo bags to help with my Headache. I rolled up in my sleeping bag with my head pushed against the cargo and spent most of the day sleeping. I would occasionally open my eyes and see Misha and Mike moving about. They asked me couple of times if I wanted to eat anything or needed anything. they checked my temperature and made sure that I was not getting worse.

    So the second morning I woke up and felt a little better but still not well enough to eat or move around. I decided I should take another injection. And this time, after Misha and Mike had consulted with the flight surgeon, they gave me a full dose of injection.

    I was really disappointed in myself… Here I thought I was always meant to be in space and now that I finally was, I was so sick I couldn’t even look out the window… I kept telling myself “Stop this nonsense… You are stronger than this… Get ahold of yourself.. this is all in your head, you can stop it…”

    I was getting really impatient and wanted to get to the station. Somehow I thought I would feel better, but everyone told me that when you first enter the station, you feel bad since you are going from a small volume to a large volume.

    I did not care, I just wanted to get out of my little Bat sack and get in a brighter, bigger place. Misha told me that I have to suit up for the docking. Right after I got my injection, they helped me get into my space suit and got me strapped in my seat.

    The docking process takes a long time. After docking, a leak check is done for the docking hatch area to make sure there is no depressurization. It usually takes close to two hours. I kept dozing in and out as Mike and Misha went through the docking procedure.

    I was wide awake on the approach and watched us inch our way closer and closer to the Station. I
