Turkey will set up a space city similar to USA’s NASA base and crack the door open to space. Ministry of Transportation, Maritime affairs and Communications started the project named ‘Space City/Uzay Şehri’.The Ministry’s first step will be sending a specialist committee to NASA and European Space Agency (ESA) to analyze. In the space center there will be laboratories that manufacture satellites, ejection systems, space technologies and space devices.
Space Training Starting
General purpose of the Space City is measuring the natural events in space and researching the unknown. The special purpose is finding and examining ground and underground sources. The Ministry of transportation is going to do works about aeronautics and space at primary school, high school and universities to increase awareness. New departments at universities will be opening. By this way Turkey’s genius students will work in this field.
National Astronauts Will Be Brought Up
The Ministry of Transportation, Maritime affairs and Communications is planning to set up the space city until 2020 and send the first space craft and astronauts to space in 2030
Last Stop Is Pluto
To explore planet Pluto and its satellites sent by NASA in 2006 the New Horizons Space craft reached its goal 9 years later. 4,6 billion kilometers from the earth the New Horizon space craft was awakened shortly before reaching Pluto. Two out of three of its time in space the New Horizon was on sleep mode because of this it increased the electronic equipment’s life-span.New Horizons observation on Pluto’s system will start on the 15th of January.260 million kilometers from Pluto the New Horizon will have a clear view of the dwarf planet in May 2015.In July there will be a first chance to see ice volcanos on the surface and atmosphere of Pluto.
