Dear Charles/ Kedves Karoly,
As a Transylvanian Hungarian I am extremely proud of you and your ideal gives us hope and strength to do something important for our people suppressed by Romania and something of capital importance for humanity. You are one of the main personalities of great Hungarians like Ed Teller, Michael Curtiz, Ernq Rubik, George Soros or Alexander Korda who are well known not only in Hungary but also in US. God speed you, dear Charles.

EXCEL feels like a universe to me expanding with acceleration, every time new version is released. How the heck did you make it?? I doubt I would ever even conquer the universe you created. And you fly away, having made me stuck!!!

Hello Charles my name is Andi (this is my Nickname because much people can`t speak out Andrijan)! I`m a very interested Ham Radio Listener. I have Holydays right now and when ever it`s possible i listen on 145.800 Mhz when the ISS crossing Europe. So i want to say please send some SSTV Pictures. I wish you a great time on ISS
Andi from Goslar, Germany
Dear Charles, Thanks for the brief chat this morning over amateur radio. I called you from my car in the parking lot at work. I wanted to include "Greetings from the Microsoft Visual Studio development office in Raleigh, NC", but I was so nervous I couldn't get it out :-) Your trips have provided us all inspiration that someday we will be able to go, too.

Follow up on question 172:
Thank you Charles. For leading the way. Spending the time, vast money and dedication to follow your heart.
You are paving the way, as you have always done, to open up new directions for mankind. For people on Earth.
Some will call you foolhardy,Hero and other - I call you the best friend to mankind.
Show us all what we can dream can happen with focus and heart.
Safe return, de-orbit and landing. Thank you for answering my question and I wish you well Charles. If I ever have the chance to meet you, I will be thankful ( not for me, nor my two amazing children , but for my grandchildren who will take up the endeavor to move mankind forward. Into the future. My best days were my children, my legacy will be the Solomon name in space, yet to be written.
ps. Please mention to both Mike and Eurie- amazing job, I have watched them both be 110% each day. I even recognize the tone and how each message is delivered and received.
You all are amazing people. I am only one but with thousands we grow and develop.

Balacs from Pacs, Hungary
Dear Charles! Thanks everything what you do! Although you're living in the U.S.A, but I think you're more hungarian as most in Hungary. The whole country is very proud of you! You could be model for the future generation. Thanks again.
Somogyi from Szolnok, Hungary
Thank you for spending time with the students from Milwee Middle School. Our son Blake asked you the fourth question. We are very proud of him, and enjoyed listening to you chat with the students. We had a great "space" experience!!!
Doug and Lisa from Longwood, fl usa
Charles, Thanks for the phone call from space! Incredible. Zillow employees were in utter disbelief. They thought I was playing an April Fools joke on them. I posted that I chatted with you on Twitter ("ET Phone Home") and have gotten tons of "No Way!" type comments. You couldn't sound healthier or happier, Charles. Come home safely,
Rich from Seattle, WA USA
Charles, it's been a pleasure to track your mission through your website. I look forward to all your blog entries and the insight via answers to all the wonderful questions. God speed!
Eric from Washington DC, USA
Dear Charles: Delighted to see that you're safely at the ISS, despite some docking excitement. All Hertz Fellows join me in wishing you a safe return -- and we look forward to seeing-&-hearing in detail of your space adventures as the featured event at a National Retreat of the Foundation, just as soon as you can schedule this!

I'm just amazed to see you did answer to all questions here, it's unbelievable and in the same time nice what you do. Not too many millionaires get engaged with day to day people, A+ for you. I was born in Romania and moved in US 3 years ago, I just want to wish you good lock and have fun out there, come back safe.
Sorin from Los Angeles, USA

P.S. Watch out for space junk!!!
CDR Keith Wheeler from Jacksonville, FL
Dear Dr. Simonyi, I'm wishing you a most spectacular, gratifying, and safe second journey to the International Space Station! Please know that all of us at Eastside Astronomical Society are still basking in the glow of your wonderful presentation for us this past October -- and that we are all rooting for you on your splendid adventure. Please say "Hi" to Lisa and her father for us too! All the best!!
Anita from Bellevue, Washington USA
Congratulations. I'm a former MSFT employee and think it's great that you are using your money to go into space. I always wanted to be an astronaut since I had a GI Joe in the mid-60's with a Mercury capsule. I actually interviewed and was accepted to NASA when I graduated College in the early 80's. I decided to go for my MA degree and study AI. Anyway, enjoy the ride. You deserve it and have motivated many people.
Greg from Newtown, PA USA
Dear Sir, Thank you for sharing your journey to the space and international space station. For me, who haven't got resources experiencing space travel, this stories, pictures and comments are so important to see human journey beyond the earth. Hopefully someday I can work for and with you. God bless you and the crew.
