According to Rt News, registrations are open for the first 100,000 citizens to form a new independant Space colony with the initial task of protecting the Earth from Solar flares and potential impact objects.


The Colony will form a new floating nation is space called "Ascardia", named after the Nordic Mythological city in the sky ruled by Odin.

Registrations are being taken here Registration

In fact whilst reading the full article and checking that it wasn't actually April Fools Day, I felt like I was reading an article 100 years in the future.

It would certainly be an experience for those on board but only time will tell if it will in fact become a reality.



An online registration form is welcoming applications for citizenship, with the first 100,000 qualifying for automatic citizenship. No word yet on how people can become citizens in the future, or whether there’ll be a wall built between Asgardia and Earth. Named after the city in the sky ruled by Odin in Norse mythology, Asgardia is the work of a team of scientists and legal experts who claim it will someday become a member of the United Nations with its own flag and national anthem. Asgardia gets underway in late 2017, when the team plan to launch a satellite into a low-Earth orbit. Until then we’ll have to stay here on boring old Earth.




Currently all space programs, including commercial, must be supervised and authorised by a government on Earth. When applications for Asgardian citizenship goes above 100,000 they can apply to the UN for the status of state, according to Ashurbeyli.

I wonder how many ATS members would be willing to sign up to join this potential new Nation if this is indeed true.
Do we currently have the technology to achieve this?
100,000 people living on a large space station would be no mean feat.

Why do I need to register? In 100 years it will be open borders and we will all have the same culture

Wow really, no screening process or anything like that, just automatic citizenship by filling a form online.

What could possibly go wrong?

Well I wouldn't be surprised if Merkel and other European leaders considered of relocating refugees into space.

They will soon be forced to take on refugees and illegal immigrants or their funding will be pulled. Also the scientists may be labled as pervert child molesting racists if they dont comply.

On a side note, we need to send people we dont want to space, not our best. Screw that, we get earth, they can be asshats elsewhere.

My first thought was Elysium however in the movie, Elysium was a colony for rich people.

This is intriguing really like can you imagine if in 20 to 30 years we could have a space station colony independent of earth's governance the amount of scientific achievements we could reach would be amazing I have signed up for this and will be supporting it however possible as I would love to go there or to Mars. "Fly me to the moon and let me play among the stars".

Look how long it took to build the ISS for half a dozen people, a colony of 100,000 people lets say a few thousands years from now

Good point. However, if they make use of 3D or 4D printing, I think this will speed things up.

Nanotec, etc... We have so much now these days, if they get the money to do it, they'll do it in no less than 50 years. My bet.

Thanks, was just about to post this. I am going to sign up right now because I think space exploration will start to take off. If I'm lucky, I'll be rich by then and will afford life-enhancing technology, too. Cool cybernetics. Then I'll probably get a free lifetime stay on the space station cause I was on the list for so many decades.
