The international team headed by Igor Ashurbeyli announced the beginning of a large-scale, ambitious, somewhat fantastic project to create an independent state in space – Asgardia. The first “brick” in its foundation will be a satellite, the launch of which is planned for the next year.
The project promises to be very democratic. Citizens of the future state can become the first 100,000 people who register to register on the project’s website .
According to project managers, Asgardia can become a new form of property and statehood in space. A place where a completely new nation will arise. This was reported by I. Ashurbeyli at a press conference in Paris.
Igor Ashurbeyli 11 years (from 2000 to 2011) headed the NGO Almaz-Antey. Under his leadership, the S-300 “Favorit” and S-400 “Triumph” anti-aircraft missile systems were created, which are still the best in the world.
One of the main functions that Asgardia will take up soon after creation, will be protecting the Earth from various cosmic threats – asteroids, space debris and solar flares. In the long term, the space state can become a member of the UN, and its foreign policy will be aimed at preventing earthly conflicts that can be carried to outer space.
Scientists participating in the project hope that Asgardia will serve the benefit of all mankind.
