Tuva Cihangir Atasever completed his suborbital flight

Tuva Cihangir Atasever will go to space with Virgin in

After Alper Gezeravcı, who went to space with SpaceX, it was Tuva Cihangir Atasever’s turn. Atasever went on a suborbital research flight today.

Tuva Cihangir Atasever, introduced as the second Turkish astronaut Minister of Industry and Technology Mehmet Fatih Kacır said the following last month: had conveyed: “The suborbital research flight of our astronaut Tuva Cihangir Atasever will take place on June 8, 2024, from the Spaceport facilities in New Mexico, USA.” The planned date was met and today Atasever, “Virgin Galactic” about the company’s mission Participated in an 80-kilometer suborbital flight. This mission went smoothly from start to finish. Head of Department of Computer Engineering at Boğaziçi University, who previously commented on the task Prof. Dr. Cem Say, “Below 100 kilometers altitude is not considered “space” according to the International Aviation Federation. (Americans are counting.) These flights last two to three hours, and the time during which passengers feel weightless is one or two minutes. The ticket price is equally cheap (less than half a million dollars).” he said. In the past week Some of his statements are included in DHA Tuva Cihangir Atasever, I will have 3 minutes to perform 3 different experiments” he said and added: “It will be a flight profile in which we ascend to an altitude of approximately 14 kilometers with a carrier aircraft, leave when the relevant favorable conditions occur, reach an altitude of approximately 90 kilometers in a short time of 1 minute, and literally touch space and come back. We will carry out scientific experiments on this flight. There will be 7 different scientific experiments.


We will carry out experiments in different fields, from astrophysics, astro particle physics to genetics, from brain blood and spinal fluid dynamics to cell microbiology. “We aim to expand Turkey’s competencies in the field of space science by testing the effects of this special flight profile on the human body and various equipment.” Virgin Galactic, the space tourism company founded by Richard Branson, owner of the Virgin empire, carried out many missions last year.
