Earnest queries about Asgardia ¶
Hi there, fellow Asgardians. I am a student from India, who not long ago applied for citizenship to Asgardia, after having learnt about it from the Facebook page. I am a vocal advocate of space travel and colonization among my friends and family, and I believe all Asgardians are intellectual enough (and definitely more), since they registered to be a part of a thing most novel and ambitious. And hence, I shall find my queries in the best of hands here.
I recently learnt that our Founding Father, Dr Ashurbeyli put forth a proposal in the United Nations about Asgardia, and I'm sure there has been a lot of paperwork involved. Is there any way, some of this could be made transparent? Asgardians ought to be kept in the loop about the developments.
Secondly, while I doubt not the feasibility of such a project, I am forced to be skeptical about the time frame. Is it something that could acheive fruition in the next 10 years? 20? There's no doubting the fact that it is a humongous project, and there are a lot of procedures to be followed before anything is substantiated, however a few questions naturally arise. Has the contract for the station been discussed yet? When finalized, where and how would the station be constructed? Is the project compliant with space laws? Would Earth's nations agree to the emigration of their citizens?
I hope and believe my queries would be answered. Long live Asgardia!
