Orions Belt Over Giza Pyramids, as will Occur on December 3, 2012
With trends in the emerging private space sector recently having led to an influx of time, money and technology dedicated to extracting mineral resources off-planet, finders-keepers mindset often espouse the adage:“Posession is 9/10ths of the law”. Here in the infancy of human spaceflight, proper attention must be given to that “other 1/10th” currently affecting us while we're still here on Earth..
To this end, the Orion's Belt project initiated by Wes Faires in 2003 has garnered a reputation of innovation regarding clarification and interpretation of Domestic and International law pertaining to outer space. This project aims to establish set precedent in the field of property rights beyond national borders and ensure a responsible management of future legislation as we move forward into space.
Two main goals drive this website:
1. Creating awareness of formal recognition recently obtained for a private property claim in outer space, which will no doubt clear up the confusion regarding current legislation which had persisted for 50 years.
2. Advocate the establishment of a a permanent platform for direct participation of the private sector within the United Nations, so that mankind has a voice in the arena where the international treaties concerning Outer Space are hammered out. On this level, it is crucial to eliminate of all hostile legal articles and amendments concerning private sovereign rights beyond national borders in order to truly move forward free of any Earthly shackles that threaten to hold us back.
