“We do not need to spend state budget funds on such traditional items for earth countries as agriculture, roads, energy, the army and others that make up the lion’s share of the budgets of earth States,” said Head of Nation Dr Igor Ashurbeyli at the first Asgardia Space Science and Investment Congress, held in October 2019.
This means that Asgardia concentrates all its efforts and financial resources exclusively on the development of outer space, on space technologies and achieving its main goal – the birth of the first human child in space in the next 25 years. The activities of the main power structures in the Space state, including the Government and Parliament, are also aimed at fulfilling this mission.
