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.

During our 11 minute plus discussion, Wayne White and I talked with John Batchelor about space property rights and the absence of them, asteroid mining, the Outer Space Treaty, space law, and viewing the coming commercial space activity with asteroid mining as being similar to the 49er days of early California. John asked lots of questions comparing this period to what he sees as the coming future for asteroid mining. Wayne talked about mining law, legal claims through the diplomatic process and more.
