The Americans allowed themselves to mine minerals on space objects

On the website of the US Congress published a document that allows US companies to engage in the extraction of minerals (attention!) on space objects.


The Americans allowed themselves to mine minerals on space objects


Information Agency Interfax cites a statement by the US Congressman from the Republican Party, Bill Posey. According to Posey, the new document is a new milestone in the implementation of American innovation projects.

Congressman:
This will help our innovative companies create jobs in the state of Washington. I am proud that local enterprises are at the forefront of progress in new industries, and they will develop our economy.


According to the same Posey, permission to carry out mining operations on space objects (asteroids) is a great success for the American economy and the United States conquering space.

В document states that the United States should consider the issue of competition in outer space and evaluate the role of progress in space exploration to improve the efficiency of economic activity.

In this case, experts in the field of jurisprudence in the United States argue that it is necessary to "settle all the legal aspects of this problem."

As you can see, Washington is in its repertoire: for the sake of minerals, the States are going to extend their jurisdiction to outer space. Indeed, a unique nation ...

          As far as I know (even though I am an amateur in this matter), there are international treaties that do not define the owner’s space objects. Well, it seems like Antarctica and all its resources belong to all of humanity. Maybe someone more knowledgeable and clarifies the legal side of the issue ... (sort of like selling plots on the moon, which actually have no legal force, and in Russian - filkin letter).
          Well, from a technical point of view, it is very interesting.

        For no one else today is capable of showing this fist punishing them in this area.
        Russia or China - yeah, right now, we or the Chinese will deal with such nonsense, we have other problems in bulk. Just laugh and that's it ...
        And after 50 years, it turns out that the Americans staked out space for themselves (and do not care that they cannot fly there, but have legally resolved the issue) and we still have to deal with them for this right - to mine on asteroids.
        So the Americans, after all, are not as stupid as they might seem.

    Это пока всего лишь документ. Ничего более. Но зная "эту нацию", можно предположить, что как только реально кто-то начнёт добывать полезные ископаемые или ещё что-то - то сразу же начнутся вопли и суды.

    I don’t remember exactly, maybe someone will tell you? I remember there was once a document in which it was said that the Cosmos (in particular exploration, production and exploration) is free and does not belong to any particular nation. Ie Cosmos is free.

    Возвращаясь к первому абзацу, дополню. Это лишь "пока" документ. Никто не знает, что стоит за этими документом. Может быть уже существуют реальные технологии. А может и нет. Никто не знает. Важное другое - надо не дать форы и возможность диктовать свои условия всему миру какому-либо одному государству (не важно какому) в плане Космоса.

    Allows US companies to mine in space objects.

    Well, why not, what's the problem? Who is stopping the State Duma from adopting a similar law, and extracting Russian companies on the basis of this law? According to Rozogin, we have everything in order with trampolines, therefore there is an opportunity to take the best asteroids, who's stopping?

    How are we without asteroids.
    Are asteroids included in sanctioned goods?

    As you can see, Washington is in its repertoire: for the sake of minerals, the States are going to extend their jurisdiction to outer space. Indeed, a unique nation ...

    Here are films in which the role of the USA itself is prophetically shown. Only not in the form of earthlings, but in the form of aliens.

    "День независимости".
    "Война миров" (по Г.Уэллсу)
    "Инопланетное вторжение: Битва за Лос-Анджелес"
    "Обливион"

    " US must consider competition in outer space"...

    Yes, to hell with you, we will not compete with you ... We will even give BSL (large shovel shovel) ...

    PS Just imagine how much it will cost 1 gram of nickel-cobalt or something else ...

    Pustozvonozhstvie ... Or sensed that the Arctic has almost been lost, so rushed forward to the future ??? So you still have to live up to him ...

    PS And what will you fly to asteroids without our engines ???

    Лет через 50, эта тема станет актуальной, когда будет создаваться космическая станция на Луне. Возможно дотянется человечество и до освоения Марса, лет через сто. Где сейчас "New Horizons" , кто подскажет?

    Well, they are already preparing an expedition to the asteroid. First, it is supposed to capture it, transport it to the Moon’s orbit (if I don’t confuse anything), and then land on it. It is clear that not tomorrow or the day after tomorrow they will learn to do such things regularly, and there they will work out the technology of capturing, transporting and processing asteroids. At some stage, this work will become cost-effective. This activity is not military, i.e. no one will hinder the Americans in this regard. Yes, and not really able to (if it goes on like that).
    Earth resources are finite. And pretty soon. But the resources of our solar system with a competent approach are practically inexhaustible. The United States is thinking about it now. And we?

    I’m wondering how they’ll stop meteorites and generally space objects, put into orbit of the earth and mining itself in space? They probably have new technologies request! Without the help of the Russian Federation, they themselves cannot fly into space, but here the extraction of resources fool

    And one more (cited from the article): At the same time, legal experts in the United States state that it is necessary to "settle all the legal aspects of this problem." Who the hell? With God? Or with a foreign mind? wassat It feels like they actually live in a parallel universe

    А космические полеты только для исследований? Экономическая составляющая не рассматривается? В т.ч. и добыча полезных ископаемых. Здесь - кто первый встал того и тапки))) Хоть аборигенов не будут уничтожать. Так что для начал Луна, пояс астероидов ждет своих добытчиков и защитников от чужих добытчиков. :) Главное не отставать от "друзей" и "партнеров" в освоении космического пространства.
