HONG KONG: On 13 June 2017, the Asgardia team will gather in Hong Kong to announce detailed plans for the first Space Nation's next steps. Led by Asgardia's Head of Nation, Dr Igor Ashurbeyli, one of the world’s most distinguished rocket scientists, the international group of leading scientists will discuss the foundation of Asgardia. Asgardia will open up access to space for commerce, science and for people from all around the world. The event will mark a new era in the Space Age, sixty years after the first ever artificial space satellite, Sputnik 1 orbited the earth. The event will be livestreamed, with details to be announced shortly.

May 30, 17 / Can 10, 01 22:02 UTC

Is it possible to translate simultaneous translation into different languages of Asgardia?


Возможно при трансляции синхронный перевод на разные языки Асгардии?

May 31, 17 / Can 11, 01 20:33 UTC

is it possible that event will be broadcasting by internet?

Jun 1, 17 / Can 12, 01 03:21 UTC

By any chance will there be translations for those of us who may not speak the broadcasted language?

Thanks :)

Please make sure there are separate audio channels for each official language referenced in the draft of the Constitution.  Staffing a handful of translators is important and should be present at every broadcasted event.  Finding confident translators shouldn't be a difficult task.  Stream all separate audio channels simultaneously in real-time with the video.  Or take the easier route and set up separate audio/video streams for each language, each with their own link.  Whatever happens, I wish you all good health and good luck.

Dear RebekahBerg



当然我的英文很糟糕,就算元首能在百忙之中接见我,我想我最多也只能说how are you 。



**Mod Edit** English translation - I am in Shenzhen, China, very close from Hong Kong, I would like to know whether to participate in the press conference, after all, this is

Asgardia in the real world from my last time, I am very looking forward to be personally involved, and also very much looking forward to see our heads.

Of course my English is very bad, even if the head of state can meet me in the busy schedule, I think I can only say how are you

Looking forward to your reply
