Grémmian Space Agency
|Grémmian Space Agency
|Established||3 June 2012|
The Grémmian Space Agency is the governmental agency in the Democracy of Grum that is responsible for developing and creating aircraft and sub-orbital spacecraft. It was unofficially created on June 3, 2012, and has experience in creating solar-heated hot air balloons and kites.
Although vague plans of building solar balloons had existed before Grémmia joined the micronational community, the solar balloon project was created mainly as a response to the successful Aureus Project of Egtavia. It is still in the developmental stage and is underfunded.
