ASGARDIA - The Incredible Truth


ASGARDIA : THE SPACE NATION


Asgardia is going to be the first space nation. The term, space nation, is not familiar to us. Let me explain.

Actually, Asgardia is a dream project of some scientists, engineers and some futurists. They dreamed the future of universe. Asgardia is also known as the space kingdom of Asgardia. From the name, “the space nation”, one can understand that this is related to space and also a nation.

There will be all the facilities to live a perfect life and it will be suitable not only for the people but for the plants and animals too. The currency of the country will be SOLAR. 


A group of people have launched a satellite into the Earth orbit to observe and collect the whole information of the space in where the country will be created. They have given the name of the satellite been “Asgardia-1”. And they call themselves as “Asgardians”.

The constitution of the country was effected on 9 September, 2017 and the space nation was inaugurated on 25 June, 2018. The ultimate aim of the project is to create a new nation on the outer space of the Earth and that will not be under the control of any existing nation on the earth. So it is going to be an Independent space nation. The name, ASGARDIA, is unique as it was chosen as a reference to Asgard. In the Norse mythology the meaning of the name, Asgard is ‘The world that was inhabited by the gods’.


They launched a rocket, “Antares 230”, to Mars on 12 November, 2017 and they expecting that the ending date of the mission will be 12 November, 2022.
