Introducing Asgardia, The First Nation In Space On Earth

Proposals for the “first nation state in space” have been unveiled by a team of scientists and legal experts, who say the move will foster peace, open up access to space technologies and offer protection for citizens of planet Earth. Dubbed “Asgardia” after one of the mythical worlds inhabited by the Norse gods, the team say the “new nation” will eventually become a member of the United Nations, with its own flag and anthem devised by members of the public through a series of competitions. According to the project website, Asgardia “will offer an independent platform free from the constraint of a land-based country’s laws. It will become a place it in orbit which is truly ‘no man’s land’”. Initially, it would seem, this new nation will consist of a single satellite, scheduled to be launched next year, with its citizens residing firmly on terra firma. Speaking to the Guardian through an interpreter, the project lead Igor Ashurbeyli, said: “Physically the citizens of that nation state will be on Earth; they will be living in different countries on Earth, so they will be a citizen of their own country and at the same time they will be citizens of Asgardia.” “When the number of those applications goes above 100,000 we can officially apply to the UN for the status of state,” he added. According to the project website “Any human living on Earth can become a citizen of Asgardia,” with the site featuring a simple registration form. At the time of writing more than 1000 individuals had already signed up.

What a SHAM this place is. By now people are probably sick of the news cycle. People getting shot by cops, black lives matter, Florida being Florida. If anyone’s social media accounts are equal to their actual belief that they want to move off of earth they would be signing this petition faster than the speed of light. Sucks however when all that will happen is they just sit there continue living day to day on this blue rock. I want to see how this spins out of hand though. Push this assignment through and watch all these assholes thinking they’re gonna be Prota Zoa rocking out in zero gravity orbiting the earth stealing all the hearts of teenage girls. Worst of allis once people find out this is just a sham, they’re gonna say Earth laws don’t apply. You know it’s gonna happen. If that is the case then just get these assholes away from me and then build a giant box in space and send them their kike how England did Australia.

Not to mention the whole “No laws” aspect they think is going to work. Do you think civilization would’ve taken us all the way to 2016 with out our silly man made laws that keep people from shooting each other in the face? You think that’s gonna float in space? Fuck no. Sure we on earth have to deal with gun violence and the punishment that may or may not follow after, but that’s a million times better than a band of space marauders not having it with you so they decide to toss your ass into the vastness of space where you’d freeze to death in an instant. We deal with Hurricane winds here for sure, but I don’t think im ready to deal with space rock storms where a small rock can tear through this place and suck everyone out into the vacuum of space. Fuck all of that. Team Earth till I die.
