DRAFT DEAL FOR MOON MIN­ING

Calgary Herald - - NAVIGATOR -

The Trump ad­min­is­tra­tion is draft­ing a le­gal blue­print for min­ing on the moon un­der a U.s.-spon­sored in­ter­na­tional agree­ment called the Artemis Ac­cords. The agree­ment would be the lat­est ef­fort to cul­ti­vate al­lies around NASA’S plan to put hu­mans and space sta­tions on the moon within the next decade. The ac­cords pro­pose “safety zones” that would sur­round fu­ture moon bases to pre­vent dam­age or in­ter­fer­ence from ri­val coun­tries or com­pa­nies. The draft pact has not been for­mally shared with U.S. al­lies yet. The Krem­lin, not an early part­ner, said the blue­print would need to be thor­oughly an­a­lyzed.
