KUALA LUMPUR, 7 Dis (Bernama) -- Generasi muda Malaysia digesa menerokai

pengalaman baru dan memenuhi impian mereka seperti angkawasan Amerika Syarikat

(AS) Neil Armstrong, lelaki pertama menjejakkan kaki ke bulan dan angkasawan

Malaysia, Datuk Dr Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor.

Dalam membuat gesaan itu, Duta Amerika Syarikat (AS) ke Malaysia Datuk Paul

W.Jones berkata Armstrong walaupun seorang rakyat AS, tetapi pencapaiannya dan

rakan-rakan Apollo 11 seperti Buzz Aldrin dan Michael Collins, adalah milik

dunia.

"Armstrong dan rakan angkasawannya telah mentakrifkan semula persepsi kita

terhadap masa dan ruang, jarak dan perspektif, bulan, alam semesta ini dan

tempat kita tinggal di dalamnya," katanya pada majlis pelancaran pameran foto

Armstrong di sini hari ini.

Jones berkata paling penting, program angkasa AS memberi perspektif baru dan

penghargaan yang lebih besar kepada kehidupan manusia di planet ini untuk

dikongsi bersama.

"Melalui pemahaman ini, wujud pengiktirafan untuk kita bertanggungjawab

sebagai warga dunia dalam komuniti global bagi mengukuhkan hubungan antara

negara dan bekerjasama ke arah matlamat dan impian yang sama," katanya pada

majlis yang dirasmikan Timbalan Ketua Setiausaha (Sains) Kementerian Sains,

Teknologi dan Inovasi (Mosti) Prof Datin Paduka Dr Khatijah Mohd Yusoff.
