MUSKWATCH: Russian Billionaire Wants to Colonize Space with “Asgardia”

We here at Muskwatch have been appalled over the last few weeks — who the heck are all these people who just think they can keep stepping on Elon Musk’s Tesla-touching toes? Jeff Bezos wants to beat Elon to the Moon, NASA wants to conquer the Sun before SpaceX can get there…the gall. And now, a Russian billionaire by the name of Igor Ashurbeyli wants to create a space-faring nation called “Asgardia” before Elon can realize colony on Mars? We just won’t have it.

Time for MUSKWATCH.

The space-nation of Asgardia was founded in 2016 but will have its first launch later this year. What will it be launching you ask? A ship? A habitat? No, a dang 512-GB hard drvie, and that’s it. Nice. Have to try a little harder next time to beat our future dad.

Also on the show: Elon lays out his plans for Martian colonization (way cooler than just a Russian hard drive orbiting Earth pfft), car company Audi is gunning hard for Tesla’s cornership of the sexy electric car market, and we share our thoughts on who should play Elon in the movie currently floating around Hollywood: The Man From Tomorrow.
