ChatGPT : The experiments included in the Science Mission for Turkey's first manned space mission have been announced. 🧑🏻‍🚀

Our space traveler will conduct 1️⃣3️⃣ different experiments of critical importance at the space station. 🧪🔬

Turkey will also make a leap in academic terms in space research.

GT: We received our training for the EXTREMOPHYTE experiment. 🌱

prof. Dr. İsmail Türkan, Assoc. Dr. Renkin Özgür and Assoc. Dr. We would like to thank Barış Uzilday for his training and hosting on the EXTREMOPHYTE experiment.

In this experiment, the growth performance of the Anatolian S. Parvula plant in the space environment will be observed and the genetic modifications that occur with the transcriptomic analyzes to be performed on the plants brought back to Earth will be revealed. With the findings to be obtained as a result of the study, it will be possible to grow the plants that people will need during deep space exploration missions, and in addition, to make an efficient agricultural production in extremely dry conditions on Earth.

GT: Our space passengers were in @TUBITAK_MAM
 and @UniBogazici
 for the training of the UYNA and Specialist experiments to be carried out in Turkey's first manned space mission.

✅ UYNA: It will make significant contributions to our country's ability to develop new generation materials for the space, aviation and defense industries.

✅ Expert: Will test the ability of microalgae to be used in manned space missions in many critical systems such as food production, wastewater treatment, air conditioning, bio-mining and 3D biomaterials production.

ESA proposes Marcus Wandt from Sweden to fly on a future Axiom space mission

Quote
Marcus Wandt was selected in November 2022 as a member of the ESA astronaut reserve after a year-long selection process. The 2022 ESA recruitment campaign received more than 22500 applications from across its Member States.

The Swedish National Space Agency (SNSA), together with other partners, is cooperating with ESA and commercial space company Axiom Space to support a future mission to space with Marcus Wandt. ESA is currently in the process of coordinating this mission.

ESA and SNSA are working on a proposal for an ambitious scientific, technological, and educational programme for Marcus that can be carried out inside Europe’s Columbus laboratory. 

Marcus joined the European Astronaut Corps on 1 June as an ESA project astronaut for the duration of his mission duties.

The Swedish astronaut is following intensive training program to meet the high standards required for space flight.

Marcus Wandt was born in 1980 and has an extensive experience as a military jet and test pilot for the Swedish Air Force.

One of Axiom Space’s astronauts in training, Col. Walter Villadei of the @ItalianAirForce will fly on @VirginGalactic’s suborbital spaceplane June 29 and help conduct over a dozen experiments on VG’s first scientific research mission. Go #Galactic01!

Galactic 01 crew, excluding pilots, attached.

Not many people have been above 50 miles in both suborbital and orbital flights. (Alan Shepard springs to mind.)

Don't forget Joseph Walker, who flew the X-15 past the Kármán line twice within two months. Some people confuse Gus Grissom as the first person to make two spaceflights.

There were other X-15 pilots that flew above the 50-mile mark but stayed below the Kármán line (i.e. Bill Dana, Pete Knight, Robert Rushworth).

Does anyone know whether this would be before or after Crew-8?

NASA, @Axiom_Space, and @SpaceX are targeting no earlier than January 2024 to launch the third private astronaut mission to the @Space_Station.

This timeframe allows for teams to collaborate on the integration of the mission's scientific research priorities that continue to expand on what we can learn in low Earth orbit to benefit humanity.

Saying “see you in space” from quarantine to my @esa colleague @astro_marcus.

Marcus will fly to the ISS in early 2024. His mission is called Muninn, which is the second of Odin’s two ravens, together with Huginn. What better name for two Scandinavians in space together 🚀

Any idea when the crew will no longer be a well educated guess and become official?

I was kind of expecting that on the occasion of the gathering in KSC for Crew-7 launch an ISS Board would bless the crew composition.
