Turkey announces space program and aims to reach moon in 2023, Erdogan said – will send Turkish civilian to space in 2023, take help from Elon Musk’s SpaceX company
Turkish President Rechap Tayyip Erdogan, who dreams of becoming the new Khalifa of Islamic countries, is looking forward to taking his country to the moon by 2023. Erdogan said on Tuesday that Turkey intends to make first contact with the moon in 2023 thanks to its national space program. In fact, Erdogan is angered by the success of his enemy nation’s mission to Mars, the United Arab Emirates (UAE). He does not want his rival country to advance in space at any price. Let us tell you that the United Arab Emirates’ Hope spacecraft made history by successfully entering orbit of Mars.
Turkish spacecraft will fly with native rocket
Erdogan said Turkey’s two-stage space program indicates that the first landing on the lunar surface will be via our national and genuine hybrid rocket. We will launch this mission at the end of 2023 thanks to international cooperation. However, Erdogan did not elaborate on international cooperation. Erdogan reportedly spoke to Tesla and SpaceX owner Elon Musk last month about possible space technology cooperation with Turkish companies.
