    Title

    Space Resources, the Enabler of the Earth-Moon Econosphere

    Description

    1) With NASA announcing the Artemis Program to return to the Moon by 2024, and increasing numbers of companies investing in extraterrestrial resource utilization, this session is dominated by technology assessments and legal analyses associated with space resources. 2) In particular, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration is seeking commercially developed payloads to exploit lunar resources for supplies, fuel and other consumables. There are many opportunities to participate. 3) One issue which nags U.S. investors is the lack of a legal regime for authorization and continuing oversight of commercial entities seeking to exploit space resources for profit. Fortunately, Luxembourg has defined such a legal regime for its country’s payloads. 4) This session seeks innovative ideas and concepts in the legal and technological regime. This session also seeks willing investors to present concepts for financing concepts to exploit space resources
