Turkey has established its space agency, according to a presidential decree published on Thursday in an official gazette.

The agency will prepare and carry out the national space program in line with the policies determined by the president, it said.

The new body will have financial and administrative autonomy as well as a special budget.

In August, Industry and Technology Minister Mustafa Varank said that Ankara was forming the space agency in order to strengthen its aerospace industry and improve scientific infrastructure and human resources in the field of space technology, Anadolu reported.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.

Zimbabwe can also set up a space agency. You need actual scientists who can put things into space. Turkey does not invest in education and Erdogan jailed thousands of scholars, which has a chilling effect on science. Turkish youth is taught to be patriotic, but they’re becoming less and less educated.

You are clueless if you don’t know what brilliant minds Turkey had, has and will have. I’m one of the Turks who contributed to ESA (European Space Agency) and many others have contributed to NASA, if we want to say in the space agency sector.
