interesting questions indeed that the mohammedan faces in space. i have
seen mohammedans in planes (i flew on kuwait airways trivandrum to
london once) struggling to keep up with the time zone because it was
during their religious fast. the captain kept announcing the time, and
also the onboard display kept showing the direction of mecca! on normal
airlines this display shows you the position of the aircraft but here it
was the orientation of mecca.
you cannot a mohammedan from his religion even in space.
reminds me of musharraf once saying "mohammedanism is the most tolerant
religion." the obvious question, "on which planet?". surely not on
