The 41st COSPAR Scientific Assembly was cancelled on Saturday, July 16th. Throughout the night before, the followers of a cult that have infiltrated the military (among other institutions), in coordination with various opportunists, attempted a coup. They were defeated. The people of Turkey took a stand against tyranny and defended Democracy itself. More than two hundred brave souls gave their lives for our freedom. More than a thousand have been injured. Though it will take time to uncover the extent of the conspiracy, life has largely returned to normal. We thank all the well wishers for their outpouring of support. As the Local Organizing Committee, we have no authority over airlines and accommodation providers. However, we intend to reimburse attendees for their registration fees.
