Asteroids, Mining & Policy

May 5, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

| Free

Join the Secure World Foundation and the Alliance for Space Development for a panel discussion on “Asteroids, Mining, and Policy: Practical Consideration of Space Resource Rights.” A light lunch will be served.

As the domestic and international community discusses and implements policy and legislation focused on space resource rights, this panel will focus on identifying the legal, policy, and business implications of that activity. The discussion will focus on practical considerations related to the development of space resources-related regulatory frameworks and their relationship to both commercial development and international commitments.
