Lembit Optik, a former Liberal Democrat, has made a statement about the future of the human race, and it does not look good for us. Asgardia wants to become the first-ever space nation, and it’s looking for a way in which the human race could exist outside Earth. This nation wants to have the first human born in space, and, of course, the permanent space habitation. In an interview, Mr. Opik talked about the future of the human race.
There are so many concerns about the natural resources of the Earth, but Opik says that it’s not quite a problem. Our problem is a potential asteroid that can destroy our Earth. He then said that we should not think of the “if”, but of the “when”. Asgardia did say that it is a rare possibility, but that we should also leave the Earth because “the clock is ticking.” Opik noted that in a lifetime, many people are Ed by an asteroid. He also stated that we need to have colonies, or, if an asteroid does hit Earth, it’s over for us.
Asgardia was founded back in 2016 by Igor Ashurbeyli, a Russian scientist. This one does not want to compete with Elon Musk’s Space X. the man behind the company has become popular in his hunt to take humans to Mars.
As you probably already know, Mr. Musk has uncovered the Mk1 starship, which is supposed to take humans to the Moon and to Mars. After the announcement, Elon Musk has talked about his wish to make orbital flights reality in the next six months. Musk is an essential person in the development of the space enterprise, and from where he is standing, he is one of the most influential people in the world.
