Saudi Arabia is going to launch its first space mission. The maiden space mission is scheduled to launch on May 21, with the Kingdom’s first ever astronauts Ali al-Qarni and Rayyanah Barnawi, on board. Rayyanah Barnawi is the first Arab Muslim female astronaut. The two astronauts are set to travel to the International Space Station. They will be part of the four-man crew Axiom-2 mission scheduled to leave on May 21 from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The Saudi space mission, which marks a historical moment for the Kingdom, will be launched from the United States. The astronauts will conduct 14 pioneering scientific experiments in microgravity that will help scientists and researchers devise new ways to provide suitable conditions for humans to further explore space. They will conduct trailblazing experiments…including research into predicting and preventing cancer and a study into how to generate artificial rain in future human settlements on the Moon and Mars. They will also conduct three educational awareness experiments with 12,000 Saudi students via a live feed.

Turkey is heading towards a second round of elections as the current President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has failed to secure 50% of votes cast that would help him decisively extend his 20-year rule. So far…Erdoğan’s rival, Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu, has scored 44.96% of the votes as per the latest figures, This is a disappointing outcome for him after late pre-election polls had shown him in the lead. Kilicdaroglu’s camp had initially contested the vote count and claimed to be ahead. Turkey’s first presidential run-off in the mostly Muslim but officially secular state’s 100-year history is planned for May 28.This election has been billed as the most important one in Turkey’s history with analysts claiming that the result will decide whether Turkey’s electorate would choose modernity ..or the traditional version of Islam. For Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, this election is of massive historical significance. It falls 100 years after the foundation of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk’s secular republic and, if Erdoğan wins, he will be empowered to put even more of his stamp on the trajectory of a geostrategic heavyweight of 85 million people. The fear in the West is that he will see this as his moment to push toward an increasingly religiously conservative model, characterized by regional confrontationalism, with greater political powers centered around himself.
