In the framework of the space mission supply Cygnus CRS OA-8E to the International space station to orbit the Earth was launched the satellite "Asgardia-1". If you are "asgardian", you can mark the date November 12 as the date to start your new life.

For all the others who don't understand what was going on, explain that in October 2016, the Russian scientist and entrepreneur Igor ashurbeyli Raufovich announced the creation of the first in mankind history space state — of Asgardia that on the official website of the project is described as the first "space Kingdom". And the satellite "Asgardia-1" was the first evidence of the presence of the "Kingdom" in space. However, the presence of rather small yet, as it launched into orbit nanosat hardly equal to the size of a regular loaf of bread. Despite this, the satellite launch is a fulfillment of the promise ashurbeyli, which he did the very first supporters of your project.

"I promised that the launch will be" — ashurbeyli said in an interview with CNN.

"We chose NASA as a reliable partner... since we needed to honour the commitments that I made 13 months ago."

The satellite "Asgardia-1" will be launched into low earth orbit aboard the International space station. There he will spend five to eighteen months, after which it will burn in the planet's atmosphere.

Sam nanosat is a compact satellite, on Board of which contains a 0.5 TB of data and about 18 000 citizens of Asgardia. Among these data there as personal information of people, including family photos, and digital data Asgardia flag, coat of arms, as well as the newly ratified Constitution.

Run "Asgardia-1" produced not only to fulfil its promise of sending digital data on its citizens in space. To formed state was given formal status under the laws of the UN, it must meet several basic criteria. Asgardian in the official press release States that three of the four set conditions Asgardia already meets: she created the Constitution, forms the government and coined its own currency.

"the Constitution was adopted Asgardia; the main currency is cryptocurrency solar (or solarcoin), it was registered with the intellectual property office of the European Union (European Union Intellectual Property Office, EUIPO); at the moment, is the formation of a government".

Defining and formally establishing a framework of sovereign borders, Asgardia be able to meet the fourth basic requirement – the requirement of having their own territory.

The Goal of the project Asgardia is not only a scientific mission, it is a social experiment. This is an attempt to create a real artificial and the first space of the state, so its citizens (the people listed in its database) strive to ensure that the United Nations has recognized it. They will achieve this recognition or not, but the formation of the space of States is not just a question of political recognition. First, Asgardia as the state actually has to exist in space. Otherwise, it is likely that it will be considered as group (a little crazy, where without it) people who consider their home space. To this goal, Asgardia is going to install in Earth orbit space station, as well as to build a colony on the moon.

"It will be a four-level space station. I think that the technical details and characteristics will be determined by our Ministry of science, which I hope will be this fall," — spoke at a press conference in June of this year ashurbeyli.

About how much time space nation will be required to establish a space station and a lunar colony, its government is modestly silent, but supporters of the idea had plenty. To date, the database of Asgardia was 134 000 citizens of the 204 terrestrial States. This is almost half below what it was in June (211 000). However, citizens have been recognized only those who agreed with the established Constitution.
