New social media law in Turkey
Opposition politicians, activists and journalists in Turkey have sounded the alarm over a draft social media law. “Everyone and everything that doesn’t suit the government can be targeted,” cyber rights activist Yaman Akdeniz told dpa. One article in particular about the spread of misinformation caused a lot of discussion. Accordingly, there is a risk of up to three years in prison if, for example, false information about the country’s internal and external security, public order and general health is spread with the motive of causing alarm.

Indian Police Fake Evidence
In India, police allegedly placed fake evidence on two activists’ computers and used it as the basis for arrests. This is reported by the US magazine Wired, citing analyzes of the computers and data from an unnamed mail provider. In the course of the attacks, the e-mail addresses of the two and another activist were compromised. A telephone number and e-mail address stored there during the hack could therefore be traced back directly to the police. IT security researcher Juan Andres Guerrero-Saade said the find renewed doubts about any evidence obtained from computers hacked by security agencies.
Ariane 6 will start in 2023 at the earliest
The first launch of the next European rocket, Ariane 6, has been postponed again and is now scheduled to take place in April 2023 at the earliest. ESA boss Josef Aschbacher admitted the delay of another year in a BBC interview. One of the reasons for the delay is a problem with a “cryogenic connection”, which seems to have been solved. The first Ariane 6 was originally supposed to fly into space in 2020, but then there were delays during the corona pandemic. In the meantime, the Ariane 6 is expected more and more urgently, the remaining flights of the predecessor are fully booked.
