We welcomed Wayne White back to the show to discuss space property rights, the proposed Asteroid Act, and his proposed Space Pioneering Act. During the first segment of our 1 hour 25 minute discussion, Wayne opened up with the Asteroids Act which was a bipartisan proposal in Congress this past summer (www.spacepolitics.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/AsteroidsActHR5063.pdf). During this segment, Wayne explained why he believes this to be an important ACT and needed in order to have a more broad reaching space property rights law such as what he has been proposing with his Space Pioneering Act. Listeners and I asked Wayne if he thought the Asteroids Act would pass &be sent to the White House for approval. He said he thought it would be passed. He continually pointed out both the bipartisan sponsors of the bill & the fact that it would not cost taxpayers any money. Our guest fielded listener questions about the international impact & compliance of the Asteroids Act as it would be a U.S. law. Wayne also explained the role of reciprocity with the Act. Next, Wayne explained why the Act was necessary for the comprehensive solution to space property rights as proposed in his broad reaching Space Pioneering Act. (SPA). The SPA is for now only a draft concept which he will start refining once he sees what happens to the Asteroids Act. We talked about his plans to approach congress and staffers as well as entrepreneurial and commercial space companies, especially those that have an interest in establishing space property rights. Wayne was asked about dispute resolution for property rights, especially if it involved international parties. Near the end of this segment, he referenced the Homestead Act, the Law of the Sea Treaty, civil laws versus common law, and the benefits derived from national law and the arbitration process.
In the second segment, Wayne started with a discussion about salvage law and why it was an important part of his SPA. Here, he talked about the Law of Finds, space debris issues, and both contract salvage and emergency salvage. Later he talked about the need to establish control zones are a commercial installation much in the way that there is a control zone around the ISS. He cited examples of problems that helped to make his points. As we neared the end of our discussion, Wayne introduced us to the need for mining law. He talked about similarities with the Mining Act of 1872 as his SPA, which includes mining law, has a similar approach to the Mining Act. Note his concluding comments & the case he makes for property rights, the Asteroids Act, and his Space Pioneering Act.

Guest: Dr. John Lewis. Topics: Asteroid mining, Chinese space program. You are invited to comment, ask questions, and discuss the Space Show program/guest(s) on the Space Show blog, http://thespaceshow.wordpress.com. Comments, questions, and any discussion must be relevant and applicable to Space Show programming. Transcripts of Space Show programs are not permitted without prior written consent from The Space Show (even if for personal use) & are a violation of the Space Show copyright. We welcomed back Dr. John Lewis to discuss asteroid mining and the Chinese space program. You can order Mining The Sky: Untold Riches From The Asteroids, Comets, And Planets by Dr. Lewis as we talked about his book throughout our program. If you use this Amazon URL, Amazon will make a donation To The Space Show/OGLF: www.amazon.com/Mining-The-Sky-Asteroids-Planets/dp/0201328194/ref=onegiantlea20. Our first segment focused in on asteroid mining, where are today, its future, legal issues to be settled, risks, and more. Near the end of this segment, we also talked about the Law of the Sea Treaty, the common heritage of mankind and revenue sharing ideas, all of which would be detrimental to asteroid mining and expanding space commerce. Earlier Dr. Lewis referenced the Keck study, The Asteroid Retrieval Feasibility Study which says we can capture a certain size NEO and put it in orbit around the Moon. Dr. Lewis carefully went through the pros and cons of doing this.
In the second segment, Tim called in and continued the revenue sharing and common heritage discussion. Dr. Lewis then cited his family history dating back to 1625 coming from theNetherlands with the West Indies Company, then staying here and moving west rather than returning to theNetherlands. He drew parallels with this and potential space settlement and risk taking. Next, we talked about the Chinese space program, their space station, the upcoming taikonaut launch in June and the fact that they are actually “bending metal” in making hardware for going to the Moon, unlike the Indian program which is still largely talk. Near the end of the segment, we talked about lunar mining, the needed future vision and leadership, the need to be a multi-planet species and why. Our discussion with Dr. Lewis is full of important information so I urge you to carefully listen to this program and use the internet to follow up on many of the topics and issues he brings to our attention. For example, you might find it interesting to see the 1926 Plan of Space Exploration as developed by Tsiolkovsky (www.informatics.org/museum/tsiol.html).

Guest: Dr. Scott Pace. Topics: Space policy, COTS, HSF safety, commercial space & more. You are invited to comment, ask questions, and discuss the Space Show program/guest(s) on the Space Show blog, http://thespaceshow.wordpress.com. Comments, questions, and any discussion must be relevant and applicable to Space Show programming. Transcripts of Space Show programs are not permitted without prior written consent from The Space Show (even if for personal use) & are a violation of the Space Show copyright. We welcomed Dr. Scott Pace back to the program for a comprehensive discussion on a variety of topics impacting space policy, commercial space, and both our civil and entrepreneurial space communities. We started our first segment with a summary of the AIAA-IAF Global Space Exploration Conference held last week inWashington,DC. We talked about the international make-up of the conference, the focus on budget issues, commercial space, and some of the different issues of concern to Europe, Asia, and theU.S. We also talked about the impact on the Europeans of theU.S. terminating certain space program partnerships as the Europeans do four year planning and budgeting unlike theU.S. which is year to year. Our first caller was Michael Listner about the European Code of Conduct for Outer Space. This was a comprehensive and important discussion on a subject that we are sure to hear more about over time. TheU.S. may even sign on to it so I strongly suggest everyone pay attention to this issue & this discussion. We mentioned recent public comments about the Law of the Sea Treaty and looked at the potential impact of the treaty on space development should theU.S. modify or adopt a version of the treaty. Toward the end of the first segment, Jerry sent in a note asking about comments made to the Washington Post by our guest on the number of test flights that might be needed for the Falcon 9, plus the response from NASA Watch. Dr. Pace talked about HSF flight safety, rocket testing programs, and how today differs from the early days of our human spaceflight history. Risk averseness was part of our conversation.
In our second segment, we talked about the rational for human spaceflight. Dr. Pace offered a geopolitical rational for HSF rather than just a capability driven program and rational. Here we talked about Asian countries emerging as space powers and participants along with what happens when we aim for Beyond LEO (BLEO) and the need to engage the new players. You will hear Dr. Pace advocate a return to the Moon several times during our program as that is a way to engage new players, plus we need to learn certain skills all over again before going BLEO. We switched topics & talked about increasing the NASA budget & treating NASA as an investment, not an expense. Dr. Pace brought our focus to what do we get for what we spend. Don’t miss this discussion. We talked about commercial crew, down selecting as an option, and competition. Dr. Pace put these issues into the form of a cost-benefit analysis project to be examined based on the goals of the desired or stated policy. Again, don’t miss his analysis of these issues. We also talked about the FAR and the SAA, insight, oversight, accountability, and higher costs coming from the FAR. Property rights & land claims were brought up along with space settlement issues. Listener Jim inquired about using the Dragon for BLEO missions. Scott had much to say about this potential. Toward the end, we talked about theU.S. budget deficit & what we spend on NASA, then I read a letter from two 5th grade students opposing space development & I asked Dr. Pace to provide us with his reply. We concluded our discussion with Dr. Pace honing in on the need for leadership here and abroad, along with the need for a robust economy.
Please post your questions/comments on The Space Show blog. If you want to email Dr. Pace, you can send your note to me & I will forward it to him.
