The concept of space nation is soon coming out of the science fiction movies and you will be able to see it as a reality. If the plans developed by an international group of scientists goes ahead well, you can surely be a part of a nation living in space!
The scientist team has announced that the project will be kick-started next year with the launch of a space satellite next year. The name of the project is Asgardia where the people can sign up to become a citizen but only the first 100,000 will be able to get the citizenship there.
According to the project leaders, this bizarre project will create a complete new framework of ownership and nationhood in the space and it will create a complete new nation. According to Daily Mail, D.r Igor Ashurbeyli, the founder of Aerospace International Research center, unveiled the future plans of this bizarre project in a press conference yesterday in Paris.
Creation of a state-of-the-art protective shield for humankind is one of the early development plans of this project. The project thus aims at preventing the world from the cosmic threats like asteroid attacks and both man made and natural threats to life on earth.
As per the concept of this grand project, travel to the other planets is a foreseeable thing in future since people have populated all over the planet earth and they have explored every corner of the earth. Asgardia will demonstrate the scientists all over the world that a private, independent and unrestricted research is possible. The very first prototype satellite is expected to launch in 2017 to 2018.
Asgardia is named in the honor of an ancient mythological city in space. This space project will offer an independent settlement which will be free from the constraint of the laws of a land-based country.
