Your Digital Self: This ‘space nation’ is launching with a satellite smaller than a shoebox

If the word Asgard sounds familiar, it’s probably because you’re either interested in Norse myths or are an avid Marvel and Thor fan. In Norse mythology, Asgard was located in the sky and connected to the “Earthly realm” Midgard via the rainbow bridge Bifrost, was one of Nine Worlds, and a home of gods.

Now the term is being used by the self-proclaimed first space nation, Asgardia. Its website states it strives for peace in space and dreams of uniting all Earthlings, regardless of nation, religion, or any other divisive issues that currently exist on Earth. Moving from Earth to space, it says, will resolve these problems and allow Asgardians to live in harmony.
