Those who have grown tired of life on Earth and wish to take to outer space to live will find the announcement of the Asgardia Space Nation to be an intriguing notion. Announced at a press conference in Paris by Dr. Igor Ashurbeyli, project leader for Asgardia, the initiative is to create a nation in space that's independent from Earth.

Created by a team of researchers at the Aerospace International Research Center (AIRC), the Asgardia project would see the traditional divisions of Earth banished. Focusing on just offering a home for Earthlings, the Asgardia Space Nation would not be focused on religion, states or nations.

Those interested in getting involved with the Asgardia project can apply online with the first 100,000 applicants receiving special preference.
