Property in Space

Asteroid The Boston Globe has a great article on property in space.  It raises a number of interesting theoretical issues about property, and might make a great teaching tool.

Gee, the article sounds strangely similar to another paper, written not long ago by...me. If you're a masochist, re-read it (if you haven't deleted it already).

You're going to see more and more of these news items.

And just for the record, private parties are far better equipped to get to the moon first, than NASA--a once great, but now sickeningly bloated and diseased body.

Yeah, that did ring a bell. I was wondering why all of the quoted experts sounded like lightweights. Now it is all clear -- I've already read the authoritiative masterwork on the subject.

Aw shucks....

Ironically I just purchased Reynolds' book "Outer Space: Problems of Law and Policy" not 1 week ago.
