    Default The first Space Nation/Kingdom of Asgardia

    Dust off your passport just in case you get a chance to visit the official first Space Station Nation/Kingdom of Asgardia. Endorsed by the ISS they are ready to go with a flag, an Eye of Horus type logo, a pledge of allegiance, a constitution, and highly emotional national anthem with a child choir. I suspect it will spin off into a religion as well when the time is ripe.

    Conceived of by Azerbaijani, Igor Ashurbeyli, the first Head of Asgardia, with help from the UN and more, it had a soft launch in 2018. It's made up of many nations to be One People. Very nice.

    The concept isn't new, though. I first read about it in 2016 in an article at The Guardian, and we even had a brief discussion about it over in our neck of the woods ─ the thread can be found here.

    There's nothing to be sorry about, dear lady. It is somewhat of an obscure thing, and apart from that article in The Guardian back in 2016, there hasn't really been any more news about it in the mainstream.

    The thread over at The One Truth was also quickly stopped in its tracks by the paranoid members who could only see the conspiracy-theory angle of this initiative. Which was a shame, because I thought the concept was fascinating, and that it opened up the door to a debate about some genuine geopolitical changes for the better.

    Therefore, I appreciate that you've brought the subject of Asgardia back to the alternative community's attention ─ and to my own attention as an individual.

    Asgardia: is there a Thor, Loki and Odin in residence? 😲
