Asgardia: Pioneer Space Nation Ready To Launch To The Stars

Watch the video until you see UNESCO popup, and you will understand that the UN is fully behind Asgardia. That’s right, the UN wants to take over outer space as well as earth. These are hard core Technocrats.  TN Editor

The space nation of Asgardia is an unbelievably ambitious project, but for now it seems to be going ahead.

The space nation of Asgardia is an unbelievably ambitious project, but for now it seems to be going ahead.

AN ambitious self-proclaimed space nation founded by a Russian billionaire and backed by a consortium of scientists is set to take its first step into the cosmos later this year.

The public collective which aims to become a space-bound private “country” calls itself Asgardia and was first announced in October by its founder and chief financial backer Igor Ashurbeyli who believes the floating nation can “offer an independent platform free from the constraint of a land-based country’s laws.”

The idea behind the project is to prompt a discussion about the regulations and laws that underpin space activity and create a demilitarised and freely accessible base of scientific knowledge permanently in orbit.In the long term it has much bolder — and somewhat quixotic — plans to create a shield to protect Earth from cosmic threats, such as asteroids, solar flares and space debris.

A look at how space race has shifted from nations to corporations, delving into detail on the key players, such as Elon Musk’s SpaceX, Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin and Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic and their ambitious long term plans to conquer space travel.

But in the meantime Asgardia wants to send its first tiny satellite into space to test the concept of long-term data storage in orbit around the Earth.

According to a recent filing with the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC), which was first reported by Motherboard, Asgardia’s initial step will be the launch of its first satellite later this year.

The organisation is set to reveal details about the launch at a press event in Hong Kong on June 13 but the filing says the very small nano-satellite will piggyback to the International Space Station on a resupply flight scheduled for September.

“The primary payload is a solid state device hard drive,” Asgardia says in the application. “The drive is loaded on the ground with data, and the data is updated once on orbit. A file is returned that verifies successful data transmission.”

In order to test the technologies that underpin the group’s goals the nano-satellite will have two particle detectors, mounted externally and internally. “From this data we can map the solar flux, and determine the radiation dosing that the internal electronics are receiving,” the application says.
