As member states and civil society thought partners consider legal models for space resource activities, Open Lunar proposes the use of a minimal overarching framework under which multiple, independent management regimes specific to different types of lunar resources can be developed.
The Moon is fast becoming the frontier for sustained civilisation and development. Space technology is leaping forward, launch costs are decreasing, and more companies and nations are planning lunar missions that ever before.
We contribute to the legal, cultural and technological requirements for humanity to create a cooperative, sustainable Earth-Moon system, through policy development and building global cooperation.
Our work helps everyone move faster and more effectively together, on Earth and in space.
