The Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TÜBİTAK) has announced it will be collaborating with the Russian Space Research Institute (IKI) and the Kazan Federal University (KFU) on space research. The agreement involves conditions for the use of the RTT150 telescope installed at Bakırlıtepe in Antalya's Saklıkent region, as well as joint space research efforts. During this period, which will last for up to three years, Turkey will be able to use the telescope for 55 percent of the time, and Russians will use the telescope for 45 percent of the time. Furthermore, a joint Russian and German-made X-ray satellite (Spectrum Radiograph Gama-SRG) is scheduled to launch within the next three years. According to the agreement, X-ray resources in space will be examined and joint research will take place. The RTT150 telescope will also support the optical examination of X-ray emitting resources. Time-sharing during this period will be 50-50 between Turkey and Russia. The satellite will determine the optical characteristics of X-ray resources by scanning the universe, which will be tracked and examined by the RTT150 telescope. A total of two percent of the X-ray resources discovered by the SRG satellite will be under the control of TÜBİTAK, and two percent will be examined jointly with the Russians.
