First Iranian Woman to Orbit

It's fitting that the first Iranian woman to orbit - and the first woman to make a commerical space flight - will be Anousheh Ansari.

Immigrate, graduate with honors in a tough discipline, make your fortune and fly to space. If that ain't the American Dream for the 21st century I don't know what is.

Update: After some minor nitpicking by Mr. Simberg the world 'muslim' has been replaced with Iranian. He's got a point - ain't no evidence she is a Muslim. Which is sad considering how fitting it would have been but so it goes.
