Malaysia Boleh!

Twinkling in the sky is a diamond star of 10 billion trillion trillion carats, astronomers have discovered.
The cosmic diamond is a chunk of crystallized carbon, 4,000 km across, some 50 light-years from the Earth in the constellation Centaurus.
It's the compressed heart of an old star that was once bright like our Sun but has since faded and shrunk.
Astronomers have decided to call the star "Lucy" after the Beatles song, Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds. (Source from BBC News)

The largest diamond on Earth, the 546-carat Golden Jubilee which was cut from a stone brought out of the Premier mine in South Africa was nothing compare to “Lucy” with 10 billion trillion trillion carats or a 1 followed by 34 zeros. Imagine that the amount of diamond that as big as our sun. This is the wealth that is forever. Hence whichever country who owns the star will be the richest country in earth.

So you know what?It’s time to show our spirit of “Malaysia Boleh”. What say if there is country success in developing a shuttle or a rocket that can travel as far as 50 light years, our government should pay them for a ticket to “Lucy” and bring some wealth back to our country. Wakaka, this project will be much more meaningful compare to the one eating “Roti Canai” on the moon. Just kidding!

Well, all this will be just a dream because 50 light year is too far. Although for sure that we human can do that but don’t know how many ten years will it take from now. Anyway hope that “Malaysia Boleh” can really bring us Malaysian to “Lucy” with a shuttle or rocket with Malaysia flag on it and made in Malaysia. GO FOR IT, MALAYSIA!!!
