Trump signed a decree on mining on the moon


The uncompromising struggle of mankind for resources continues. And it seems that now "under the gun" was space. On Monday, April 6, US President Donald Trump signed a decree allowing Americans to engage in the extraction of resources on the moon and other celestial bodies on a commercial basis.


The document emphasizes that the United States Administration does not recognize any attempt to consider outer space as the public domain of mankind. In this case, we are talking about the relevant agreement adopted by the UN General Assembly in 1979.

The US Administration considers space to be a unique space for human activities, both from a physical and legal point of view. In this connection, Donald Trump called on the Secretary of State to stop any attempts by other states or individuals to use the aforementioned agreement as a norm of international law.

At the same time, such actions were called expropriation at Roskosmos, and Dmitry Rogozin even saw the relationship between this Trump decree and the introduction of an emergency in the United States due to the pandemic of the new coronavirus.

Let's try to understand how these decrees are related

The functionary wrote on his Twitter.

It is also worth recalling that on April 2, NASA introduced a new program moon exploration after astronauts land. The latter provides for the construction of a base and related infrastructure, allowing us to stay on the surface of our natural satellite for a long time.

    Late.

    We will build a lunar station, and then fly to Mars. Ukrainian designers announced the possibility of launching a program of manned space flights. In the near future - the creation of a lunar station, and in the long term - flights to fiery Mars.

    If you bring a good sedative, and they remember how they flew for the first time, then the diagnosis will become more favorable.

    No matter who says bad things about Trump, but first of all he is a wonderful businessman and a swindler, and after this statement he will start selling lunar sites for the development of "minerals", and the idiots who subscribe to this case will be immeasurable.

      They were sold twenty years before Trump. If not thirty.

      And what is stopping Russia from selling parts of the Sun in order to request later the bill for lighting from others? If to troll, then to the full!

    Well done, right. In the end, people will master the extraction of minerals on other celestial bodies, and the legal ground for this must be prepared today. I hope that in my life I will have time to catch this moment.

      Some of the readers envied you, a young blond with blue eyes, that you would “catch this moment,” and he, an old-sick-bald man, wouldn’t. So I put you the Minus ...

    In response, the sun must be privatized! Since May, you can bill states for the consumption of light and heat! All appeals can be considered in the Basmanny or Tver court of Moscow!)

      And on the other hand ... what about the prices for the delivery of resources from the Earth to the same Moon?

    The US Administration considers space to be a unique space for human activities, both from a physical and legal point of view.

    A subtle hint that the agreement on not placing shock elements in space, the Americans put in the trash. The militarization of outer space with such “negotiators” is just around the corner, and whoever is not ready will be pressed from above.
