And He Is Going For...?

The Expedition 16 Crew Members
The Expedition 16 crew members who will blast off to the International Space Station on October 10th.
From the left (front row) are Russia's Federal Space Agency Cosmonaut Yuri Malenchenko, Flight Engineer and Soyuz Commander, Astronaut Peggy Whitson, Commander and Malaysian spaceflight participant Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor. From the left (back row) European Space Agency (ESA) Astronaut LĂ©opold Eyharts, Astronaut Garrett Reisman and Astronaut Dan Tani, all Flight Engineers.
My question is what is Malaysian spaceflight participant Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor going to do (apart from having an all expense paid holiday courtesy of the Malaysian taxpayer to the international space station) up there when he is only a spaceflight participant? Make Teh Tarik and distribute Visit Malaysia Brochures?
