Possible constitutional violation. ¶
As the proposed constitution states in chapter 1 #2 the objectives of Asgardia are "To ensure equal opportunities in space for all Asgardians residing on Earth, regardless of geographic, financial, technological and other specificities of the countries of their Earthly citizenship." This is guaranteed in Chapter 1 #4 "All citizens of Asgardia are equal, regardless of their Earthly country of origin, residence, citizenship, race, nationality, gender, language, or financial standing."
If we break it down that means that there cannot be any discrimination against an Asgardian. The launch of satellite Asgardia-1 already depicts a clear violation of the constitutional property. The first 100,000 citizens are given preference as they are allowed to freely upload up to 500kb of data to the satellite. EVerybody else receives less or has to pay for their data to be uploaded to Asgardia-1. This means that there is a financial discrimination and a discrimination of status through an official asgardian program.
Question now is, if the constitution (unrevised) comes into effect, would a complaint filed with the supreme space court be valid?
