Malaysians to help pick astronaut

Malaysia is planning to send one of its own to space and thus initiated a space development programme. The response from the public was huge and encouraging, a sign that this country is really ambitious.

All is fine so far, but from here onwards it gets a bit complicated. Apparently, the science minister plans that members of the public will be able to choose the country's first astronaut from a shortlist and vote by text message. This sounds like reality shows enter the ream of politics and science.

Participation and democracy is all good, but please ensure that quality of the astronaut is ensured. If the public votes for beauty and not for quality, well, then I don't know.
