Scientists propose space nation named ‘Asgardia’ and cosmic shield to protect Earth from asteroids
A space nation, independent of countries on Earth, could be founded after a team of engineers, scientists and legal experts put forward proposals for an extra-terrestrial state.

The project, which is led by Russian scientist Dr Igor Ashurbeyli, Chairman of UNESCOs Science of Space committee, aims to create an area in space which is beyond the control of individual nations. But the group of scientists say that by creating a new nation, space activities can ‘flourish free from the tight restrictions of state control that currently exist’.. The team has named the new state ‘Asgardia’ – derived from Asgard, one of the nine world’s in Norse mythology...

The public is being asked to help design the nation’s flag and 100,000 citizenships were made available at Wednesday's launch.
