Birth Of An Orbital Nation

Asgardia, in orbit above Earth.

An international group of researchers, engineers, lawyers, and entrepreneurs has announced the creation of a nation in space, named after an aerial city ruled by the Norse god Odin: Asgardia.

The project’s goal is to protect humankind—or, at least, some of it—against every disaster: earthquake, tornado, terrorism, pestilence, nuclear strike, biological warfare, asteroid collision, solar storm, volcano, aqueduct poisoning.
