About the Nation of Asgardia
Asgardia is the first Space Nation that seeks to ensure the peaceful use of outer space, protect Earth from extra-terrestrial threats, and create a generally accessible scientific knowledge base in space. The long-term goal of Asgardians is to learn how to live outside Earth by creating the first settlements in space and on the Moon.
Anyone can contribute to the achievement of these lofty goals by becoming a Resident of Asgardia. Thanks to the Residence fees, Asgardia can focus on its three key priority areas: the establishment of nationhood, the creation of projects in the field of science and technology, and the strengthening of Asgardia's economy.
