Below is an actually cool article by Vice that doesn’t go out of its way to be crass or hip. It concerns the Nation of Celestial Space, which was one man’s attempt to claim the entirety of outer space as his own. He didn’t do so to “own” space but to prevent other nations from claiming it (or part of it) as their own. He was a “publicity man” that knew how to attract a crowd, but his intentions for the intergalactic micronation were pure.

Read the Vice article here.
