Sundahl Named to Hague Working Group on Outer Space Resources

Professor Mark Sundahl was recently appointed to Hague Space Resources Governance Working Groupto participate in an international effort to explore an international approach to regulating the extraction of natural resources from the Moon and other celestial bodies.  The Working Group was created by the International Institute of Air and Space Law at Leiden University in the Netherlands to address the legal issues that promise to arise as private companies (as well as governments) move forward with plans to harvest precious metals from near-Earth asteroids and extract water and other natural resources needed to support a permanent human presence on the Moon and Mars.
