@greenprofgreen @nytimes Dear @greenprofgreen, everyone is entitled to their #opinion, but it’s unfortunate that your op-ed contains several errors about #spacelaw, and also misinterprets the character, intent and context of the #ArtemisAccords. @nytopinion
@greenprofgreen @nytimes @nytopinion To start, the #OST does *not* "designate space as the province of all mankind". Instead, its use & exploration of outer space shall be the province of mankind. Not the same thing.
@greenprofgreen @nytimes @nytopinion More serious is the mistake that #OST "codified norms of the common heritage of mankind". The #OST does NOT contain the #CHM principle! The Moon Agreement does, which is why no space faring nation proceeded to sign it, as they misunderstand this concept.

A wonderful thing about the world of space is that we are all connected virtually during this time. I've got to take part in some amazing initiatives over the past few months and I look forward to seeing what's coming up!

1) Let's game out what a realistic independence movement in #space might look like. AS ALWAYS these views are my own. We're going to need to draw from #spacelaw, #internationalrelations, #InternationalLaw, and #history here. A thread.
2) Let's posit that the goal is a sovereign, self-governing habitation on #Mars, free-floating, or on the #Moon, not subject to control by a terrestrial country. How do we get from where we are now to there? Yes we've all read Moon is a Harsh Mistress and the Red Mars trilogy.
3) The first thing to realize is that you can't do this in one step. Ops in space are entwined with terrestrial activities and governments so separation is hard. As for law, the #OuterSpaceTreaty requires countries to exercise jurisdiction & control over activities, even private.

Hi everyone! :) I'm Ute (pronounced like “Oohter” with the emphasis on the first syllable. Equivalents are Audrey in English, Aude/Odette in French), and first of all I would like to thank @Taraustralis for the privilege of letting me host “People of Space” this week!
@Taraustralis Another special thank you goes to my direct predecessors, @marmatheghost and @martinesrymd, for their great contributions! Both have inspired some of the things I intend to talk about over the next 7 days.
@Taraustralis @MarmaTheGhost @martinesrymd Tara created @people_of_space so people from all walks of life could talk about their passion to a larger audience. Her intention will in fact also be this week’s motto: “Space is for Everyone”.
Welcome aboard; enjoy the ride! :)
