On October 12th 2016 Dr. Igor Ashurbeyli announced ASGARDIA - the first in human history Space Nation, the first country with its territory in space, the first society where all humans are united through space, no matter where on Earth they are from. It is an innate human right - to benefit from space research and exploration, and to have access to space facilities, to enjoy the results of space innovation in daily life. ASGARDIA is the first country that will exercise this right universally, and will offer equal opportunities to all people around the globe. ASGARDIA is the vision and the real future. It is a country of today's start-ups that will become the core of the progress and evolution of tomorrow.
Right now we all have an extraordinary opportunity not only to witness the beginning of a new era of human unification thought space, but to be part of making it happen.
ASGARDIA is your lift into the future.
