Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced on the 23rd local time that Turkey is starting the process of sending a Turkish citizen to the International Space Station under the framework of the country's national space program. Erdogan said that citizens sent into space will have the opportunity to conduct scientific tests and experiments in a weightless space environment. All citizens of Turkey under the age of 45 who meet the relevant requirements of education can apply for this opportunity. Finally, two candidates will be selected from the applicants for training. In 2023, one of the two will be sent to the international space station. Erdogan said that the world's political independence is achieved through technological independence, and Turkey is trying to establish its own technological independence.
