James Morcan | 11355 comments So some Russian billionaire has set up an outer space kingdom he's calling Asgardia that is stating it is already an independent nation - and which appears to have some support from NASA and the UN...They have satellites in orbit now and plan to set up permanently-inhabited space stations and colonies on the Moon...

Anyone can become a citizen, without giving up citizenship to their own current nation...

According to their website, "Asgardia was created with three top goals in mind: to ensure the peaceful use of space, to protect the Earth from space hazards, and to create a demilitarized and free scientific base of knowledge in space. Asgardia also has a long-term objective of setting up habitable platforms in space and building settlements on the Moon. ... We believe that the creation of a new legal platform for the exploration of near-Earth and deep space is crucial to keep pace with humanity’s rapid technological and scientific expansion off-planet. Universal space law and astro-politics have to replace the current outdated international space law and geopolitics."

Asgardia, also known as the Space Kingdom of Asgardia, is a group of people who have launched a satellite into Earth orbit. They refer to themselves as "Asgardians" and they have given their satellite the name "Asgardia -1". They have declared sovereignty over the space occupied by and contained within Asgardia -1.

The Asgardians have adopted a constitution and they intend to access outer space free of the control of existing nations. They are in the process of electing a 150-member parliament and they are planning to seek recognition as a nation state.

Igor Ashurbeyli, the founder of the Aerospace International Research Center, proposed the establishment of Asgardia on 12 October 2016. The "Constitution of the Space Kingdom of Asgardia" was adopted on 18 June 2017 and it became effective on 9 September 2017.[5] Asgardia's administrative center is located in Vienna, Austria.[6]

The Cygnus spacecraft that carried Asgardia -1 into space released Asgardia -1 and two other satellites on 6 December 2017. The Space Kingdom of Asgardia has claimed that it is now "the first nation to have all of its territory in space."
