Space Fantasy #27: The First Space-Based ‘Nation’ Wants to Store Data Off-Planet, Beyond the Law

The First Space-Based ‘Nation’ Wants to Store Data Off-Planet, Beyond the Law

'Asgardia' plans to launch a data storage satellite beyond the reach of Earthly laws—an ambitious and problematic goal. Self-proclaimed 'space nation' Asgardia will launch a satellite later this year to test the concept of long-term data storage in orbit around the Earth. This potentially opens the door to off-planet data and tax havens, according to filings obtained by Motherboard, and represents an important step towards the group's proclaimed goal of starting a private nation in space. In October 2016, an international team of scientists and researchers led by Russian businessman and computer scientist Igor Ashurbeyli announced the founding of Asgardia. The wannabe private nation hopes to eventually fly inhabited space stations, to protect the Earth from extraterrestrial threats like asteroids, and to create a demilitarized and freely accessible base of scientific knowledge permanently in orbit. So far, over 180,000 Earthlings have pledged allegiance to this hypothetical orbital country by filling out a citizenship form online. Anyone on Earth can apply, without sacrificing their existing nationality. Asgardia is currently self-financed by Ashurbeyli and his co-founders but has plans to crowd-fund from its citizens—and eventually to establish taxes. Source

As a Spirit Airlines flight from Guatemala City landed in Fort Lauderdale Monday afternoon, the pilot reported an “unidentifiable odor” in the plane’s cockpit, officials said.  Despite media reports of smoke on board, Spirit spokesman Paul Berry said “it was just an odor.”  “No smoke was ever seen,” he said. “Everybody was fine.”  There were 148 passengers aboard Flight 244, which landed at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport at its scheduled time of 4:30 p.m. No one was injured, Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport spokesman Greg Meyer said.

Summa Th. I EN Qu.64 a.4 Article: 4 Whether our atmosphere is the demons' place of punishment?

Space Fantasy #33: Jeff Bezos' Vision: 'A Trillion Humans In The Solar System'!

Jeff Bezos' Vision: 'A Trillion Humans in the Solar System'  Bezos said the Apollo program was inspirational, helping to fuel his desire and passion to make a difference in space exploration.

"I have won this lottery," Bezos said. "It's a gigantic lottery, and it's called Amazon.com. And I'm using my lottery winnings to push us a little further into space."

Bezos said he is not in the camp of the "Plan B argument" for the colonization of space — that one day Earth is going to be destroyed or uninhabitable, so we better have another place to live.

"I hate that idea … I find it very unmotivating," Bezos said. "We have sent robotic probes now to every planet in this solar system, and believe me, this [Earth] is the best one."

While we should and will colonize space (via the harnessing of solar energy and asteroid resources), Bezos said, there's also a need to avoid stagnation here on Earth by putting control…

Nice Airport: easyJet Employee Punches Complaining Passenger In The Face!

Nice Airport, an employee punches a passenger holding a baby in the face for complaining about easyJet flight delay  The event took place at the end of a day of stress for more than 150 passengers.
