A Russian industrialist's proposed 'space nation' is dealing with early growing pains that may keep the concept from getting off the ground.
When Igor Ashurbeyli announced the formation of 'Asgardia' last year, the idea was met with skepticism from legal experts and scholars, but also generated tremendous enthusiasm from the general public.
A whopping 300,000 people from around the world signed up to take part in the effort, however their idyllic feelings appear to be faltering as the 'space nation' begins to take shape.
At the center of the conflict is a proposed constitution, which was unveiled earlier this summer and has spawned vociferous debate within the online community of would-be Asgardians.
