On September 29, 2005 the Russian Federal Space Agency and the Government of Malaysia signed a Contract for performance of science research activities and experiments under ANGKASA MSM Project during the flight of Malaysian angkasawan Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor Al Masrie as a spaceflight participant of the visiting crew 13 (VC-13) to the International Space Station. Eight experiments under ANGKASA MSM Project (Malaysia) are planned to be performed onboard the ISS RS under VC-13 program. Five experiments of the VC-13 spaceflight participant will be performed under the Malaysian National Program and three experiments under joint program with ESA. Furthermore, public relations and symbolic activities are planned during VC-13 spaceflight participant mission.
The ANGKASA MSM Project intends to implement 31 sessions for 8 experiments in the following areas:
