Sundahl Joins Panel on Asteroid Mining at New Worlds Conference in Austin, Texas

Professor Mark Sundahl joined two other panelists in Austin, Texas on Friday, November 4 to debate the challenges and solutions that face the U.S. government in regulating the emerging asteroid mining industry.  The panel was rounded out by Bob Richards, owner of Moon Express, and Laura Montgomery, the former lead lawyer at the FAA for licensing the launching and reetry of space vehicles.  The panel was organized and moderated by the General Counsel of Deep Space Enterprises, one of the driving forces behind this new industry.  As U.S. entrepreneurs continue to create companies engaged in non-traditional space activities, such as asteroid mining, the U.S. government faces the challenge of regulating these activities in a way that meets international obligations and facilitates U.S. industry, while minimizing any regulatory burdens.
