Pakistani Woman Namira Salim Achieves Honor of Reaching Space

New Mexico: Pakistani female space explorer, Namira Salim has made history by reaching space and becoming the first Pakistani to do so. According to media reports, Namira Salim arrived in the United States recently to embark on a journey to space with the American company Virgin Galactic. The Virgin Galactic Commercial Space Liner’s mission, named Galactic 04, departed from Spaceport America in New Mexico the previous day.

Namira Salim, along with three other tourists, traveled in the company’s VSS Unity spacecraft’s cabin. Before her space journey, Namira Salim also had a meeting with Pakistan’s Information Minister, Murtaza Solangi, during which she discussed her preparations for the space trip.

Namira Salim is among the first 100 individuals who purchased tickets for this American company’s space tourism. She had booked her ticket for this journey back in 2006 and has now finally realized her dream of traveling to space.

It is worth noting that before this achievement, Namira Salim had already hoisted Pakistan’s flag at the North Pole on April 21, 2007, and at the South Pole on January 10, 2008. Additionally, Namira Salim is Pakistan’s first woman to have the honor of reaching both poles.
