Join us for the launch of our latest report, an overview of the development over the past five years on space law and space resources.

If you are able to do so please consider donating £5 to help support the costs of this event and the work of the Centre for a Spacefaring Civilization.

Five years ago the US Congress passed a law which recognizes ownership rights of American citizens over space resources which they have extracted from celestial bodies. This was the first law of its kind to enter into force, it has been followed by others, international debate and not inconsiderable controversy.

In this webinar, being held on the anniversary of the bill being presented to President Obama, leading space resources legal expert Dr Thomas Cheney will, after a presentation on our report, discuss the developments of the past five years with Professor Christopher Newman and Ms Lauren Napier. There will also be a Q&A session for attendees.
