Space Sciences 2023 Vision Project of Turkiye: Eastern Anatolia Observatory (DAG) and Space Sciences EcosystemCahit Yeşilyaprak
Eastern Anatolia Observatory (DAG) is an international observatory with Turkiye's largest diameter (4 m) telescope which can observe both the visible and infrared regions. DAG, as the largest fundamental science investment in the history of the Turkish Republic, is one of Turkiye's 2023 Vision Projects. DAG brings innovations to both the field of space sciences and the optical and space technologies. Besides, DAG will create the knowledge and equipment that will also serve the technology. In this context, it creates both human resources and an infrastructural environment for the innovative technologies it needs, and thus becomes the trigger for an ecosystem environment that offers different opportunities for space sciences.
