Chairwoman
Ms. Ariadne Gallardo

I’m involved in Asgardia because I truly believe it’s time for humanity to prepare for a future life in space. One of my passions is campaigning about space debris – a concern that we must urgently recognise. I would like to know everything about the needs and worries of every Asgardian around the world; it is important to create a strong connection and understanding between us all. 

Then, in the future, we can reach our goal of living freely, working together and having mutual respect no matter what colour our skin or our geographic situation is.

Deputy
Mr. Nicola Macina

I studied Architecture at the Polytechnic of Bari. After coming 29th in the national ranking, as a competitive athlete, I decided I wanted to become a coach. I became an administrative employee at the University Sports Center of Bari, working as an assistant to the General Secretary Pasquale Cinquepalmi. I was a Deputy Secretary General. In 2002 I became the General Secretary at the University Canoe World Championships held in Bari. In 2006 I was selected as a torchbearer for the “XX Olympic Winter Games Torino 2006”. 

In 2009 I held the position of Provincial Councillor of Fidal of Bari (Italian Athletics Federation). My hobbies are: photography, poetry, sport and music. I believe that fitness allows us to live healthier lifestyles. In sports, you win without the need to harm others. Sport also reveals an individual’s personality. So does Asgardia.

Mr. Ugur Aydin

I have been a member since Asgardia was first announced. Faith, high motivation and determination have brought me to the position I am in now. I am the 345th person who approved the Constitution. I try to be an example and to encourage people. I try to encourage them to act in a united way. Asgardia.space is my homeland in space – and I care about those lands very much. My biggest support is my family. And, of course, my wife and daughter are also Asgardians. I created a fun character, “Raydin” based on the Asgardia-1 satellite, and I hope that one day we’ll have him as a symbol of Asgardia.

Mr. Jordan Ballega

I thank God for giving me the opportunity to be an Asgardia member of the Parliament through our residents and citizens who trusted me with their hopes and desires for Asgardia’s future. I’ve got a BSc in Civil Engineering and I’m a multimedia specialist from the Philippines. 

I was appointed as National Community Manager in Asgardia before I was elected as a Member of Parliament. My passion for the Asgardian community is rooted in my social development involvement in our local community. My work and principles in Asgardia Parliament are guided under my TECHELPS platform, which is the acronym for health, education, livelihood, people empowerment, sustainable development, and technology

Ms. Deniz Celik

I truly believe that an equal world is possible! Equality is the foundation of Asgardia and this is why I wanted to join in. Being understanding and cooperative, free from impacts from politics, religion and race – these values are an impressive start for any nation. 

Everything that history taught could be applied to our little baby – Asgardia and we can raise and teach this baby as we feel is right. We can develop all scientific studies and technologies with it. That’s why I think it’s the right decision to join Asgardia and make the effort to participate in this inspiring project!

Mr. Benjamin Dell

 After 16 years in the South African Airforce, specializing in Fire control RADAR and Educational Technology, I moved into the IT field where I established my own company. After almost half a lifetime of building a sustainable business that is independent and will hopefully be around for a long time, I also chaired and served on various business and social service boards and non profit companies. 

I always had an interest in space exploration. I’m convinced that the development and exploration of space will someday be of fundamental importance for the future development and survival of humanity. Joining Asgardia is the next logical choice in helping build that future.

Ms. Carol Lynn Lockhart

I have an associate degree in Business Administration/Medical, and I’m pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration and Business Management. Then I plan to do a Master’s degree. When I watched the Apollo Moon landings as a child, I became extremely interested in space. 

Then, one day, I read an article about Asgardia. I admit I was skeptical at first, but intrigued. I did some research and fell in love with its Core Beliefs: a place without hate or war – it gave me hope for humanity. I started by volunteering behind the scenes for Asgardia and then I ran for AMP. Now I’m working in Parliament for the interests of the nation.

Mr. Paul Lovette

I grew up with an eye always to the future and a better humanity.  I am an avid fan of Star Trek as it represents “One Humanity and One Unity” or, as I like to call it, “Humanity 2.0.”  I work in the Information Technology field doing virtual networks, storage area networks and e-mail server administration, to name a few.  

My hobbies include singing in a community choir and community theatre. I got involved with Asgardia on the day it was announced. I saw the announcement on a news website and signed up in the first hours of our nation. I’ve never looked back.

Mr. Enrico Rizzato

I work in a public hospital and I also work at a radiology department for software services and health customer services – officially a technician. I have previous work experience in journalism and public relations. I’m really interested in new technologies and gaming softwares. 

One day, I was browsing the Internet and came across Asgardia’s website. I really liked the idea of a Space Nation and I decided that I wanted to get involved and run for election to Parliament.
