The company envisages a permanent Asgardia settlement on the Moon by 2043 to ensure humanity would survive events such as a cataclysmic asteroid impact.
Before you laugh, consider this. Without rockets, there would be no spaceships with which to fly into Outer Space. Without airplanes, there would be no rockets. Who was the genius behind finally solving the 6,000-year old puzzle of sustained flight? 2 obscure and unknown bicycle builders tinkering in North Carolina. So take all the technological advances made since that time, add billions of dollars, AI, and whatever else you would need, and could an Outer Space city called Asgardia really come to life. Absolutely it could, and more than that, it likely will.
“But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.” Matthew 24:37-39 (KJV)
Everywhere you look now, it is the tech millionaires and billionaires who are funding and advancing breakthroughs in Outer Space. You have Elon Musk with SpaceX, whose stated mission is to ” mission is to enable humans to become a spacefaring civilization and a multi-planet species by building a self-sustaining city on Mars.” Then you have Richard Branson with Virgin Galactic, who says they are “developing and operating a new generation of Outer Space vehicles to open space for everyone.” Asgardia plans to be the place where Outer Space travelers will live when not on Earth.
“And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?” Revelation 6:14-17 (KJV)
Unsaved man knows that something is coming, they don’t know exactly what it is, but they know. They desperately want to get off this planet, and for the first time in human history all the right elements are finally in place to do it. Remember the sci-fi movie ‘2012’ where rich billionaires knew the end was coming so they built a fleet of Noah’s Ark style ships to save themselves and their rich friends? It’s everywhere you look, it’s on everyone’s mind, and that day is right around the corner.
“Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;” Titus 2:13 (KJV)
You and I, fellow born again Christian, will not leave in an ark or go to live in an Outer Space city like Asgardia, none of that junk for us. We who are saved will fly up and out of here on Flight #777 on Titus213 Airlines in a glorious event known as the Pretribulation Rapture of the Church. And our dwelling place, our mansions, will not be in something as cheap and temporary like Asgardia, we will live in New Jerusalem with the Lord Jesus Christ. That’s what you signed up for the day you got saved.
Russian billionaire’s 15 million-strong ‘Noah’s Ark’ plan to create space ‘garden of gods’
FROM EXPRESS UK: Igor Ashurbeyli is the Azeri-Russian tycoon behind Asgardia, a project launched three years ago to establish “permanent peace in space”. In 2017, the group sent a satellite – Asgardia-1 – into low-Earth orbit and declared sovereignty over the space it occupies. The outlandish ambitions do not cease there, but “Head of Nation” Dr Ashurbeyli has sought to prove this is more than just a sci-fi fantasy.
Earlier this year, Asgardia unveiled plans to build a fleet of “cosmic Noah’s arks” orbiting the Earth, at a cost of roughly £100 billion a piece for its micro-nation.
Former Liberal Democrat MP Lembit Opik was elected as the chairman of the Parliament of Asgardia during its first session in Vienna, Austria. He is part of a British core involved in the project, that also includes Tory Brexiteer Nigel Evans who chairs the Asgardian parliament’s foreign affairs committee, and Philip Appleby, a former Ministry of Defence official and police officer who has been appointed Minister of Safety and Security.
Mr Opik told iweekend: “Lots people are building rockets, Asgardia is about building the society to go with them.
“At some point in the future, ordinary people are going to have to inhabit space and we are not going to build a social infrastructure from mission control. It has to be built by consent – painstakingly and comprehensively. We have to decide the rules and methods on everything from burials to taxation, from marriage to procreation. My political back catalogue tells you that I’m no stranger to dealing with the unexpected, it has never bothered me to be on the far side of convention and target for suspicion of derision. We are getting some big names from science and commerce and it creates a virtuous circle – the more people take us seriously, the more serious it will get.”
Asgardia says it will be sustained by charging its first seven million “primary Asgardians” €1,000 (£900) for formal citizenship and a passport and seeking a further €1billion (£90million) each from seven unnamed “primary investors”.
The resulting income, will provide a €15billion (£13.4billion) war chest for Asgardia to invest in research and the building of its institutions. These finances are tied-up in its own cryptocurrency – the Solar – which began test purchasing this month.
In October, the organisation will host a three-day science conference in Germany attended by senior figures from City investment houses, universities including MIT, executives from organisations such as British defence contractor QinetiQ and former NASA employees. The ultimate goal is to recruit 150 million Asgardian, of whom 15m will be residents in space and beyond.
The company envisages a permanent settlement on the Moon by 2043 to ensure humanity would survive events such as a cataclysmic asteroid impact.
Mr Opik added: “History shows that there has to be pioneers. When the Wright Brothers first flew, no-one really knew where their invention would go. Now we sit in the back of a jumbo jet with a gin and tonic watching a film. Humanity’s survival depends on our presence in space.” READ MORE
