Saying Goodbye to Cassini

“Cassini’s descent into Saturn was intentional. The spacecraft was rapidly running out of fuel, after spending nearly 20 years in space, and NASA scientists decided to make use of the mission’s inevitable conclusion. By crashing into Saturn, Cassini had the opportunity to see what the planet’s upper atmosphere is made of, and that’s the data that the probe sent back to Earth during its final few moments of life. The probe took its last images of the Saturn system yesterday (Sept. 14), and transmitted those images back to Earth the same day, ahead of its plunge.”

Voices of Asgardia to get a Makeover

Voices of Asgardia, Asgardia’s premiere radio station is getting a makeover.

For the first time in months, www.voicesofasgardia.com is being revived thanks in part to efforts by VOA’s Staff who have been working quietly behind the scenes while station founder Ryan Zohar was on furlough following a cross-country household move to Arkansas, United States.

Things to expect with the makeover:
>> New website design and layout. Graphics Coordinator Eric Viana, who is also the acting webmaster, is currently working with an Asgardian volunteer on migrating the site and radio station to a private server in Germany. Eric will be implementing a new site design in the near future, geared towards suggestions from  fans and contributors.

VOA Announcement 4/4/2017

To our supporters, constituents, devotees and fans, a warm salutation from the staff at Voices of Asgardia. It’s been a very busy week here as we are adjusting to the work flow changes inspired by news article incorporation, but our newest team members assure you they’re up to the task and we are very pleased with the outcome.

The reason for this letter covers something very important that we felt we needed to clarify. A few weeks ago, we were astonished to find a member of our community blasting our chat window in regards to a dispute with the management entity known as Civic Asgardia. They were quite clear in announcing their feelings on the matter, and asked to be removed from our community as well...
