Lunar Republic?

category international | sci-tech | other press author Wednesday September 21, 2005 15:31author by iosaf Report this post to the editors

the organisation "lunar Republic" have just started the long process of internationalising their proclamation and ideals, their web site has just launched and might prove a good umbrella or maybe not...

For many years now I have lamented the lack of a "space.indymedia", we have added biotech to the global list, we have seen many initiatives on satelite technology, but the issues of space, and the use and misuse of space exploration and speculation are yet to be drawn together by us.
she really is much much more important that we think.
she really is much much more important that we think.

The USA through its monolithic space agency NASA has announced plans to "return to the moon". The chinese dropped plans in the last two years for manned exploration, the indians claim they will send a probe in the next five years. But for the moment the Moon in terrestial exploration historical and legal terms is best "claimed" by the USA.

This signals an increased drive on the part of scientific and capitalists lobbies to profit on micro-gravity environments and again raises the issues of financial exploitation of "off earth sites".

It is currently illegal under unaminous UN resolution for any state on the earth to claim or extend sovreignity to the Moon or any other planetary object. No claim may be made on the boundaries of lunar real estate.

A very large section of our planet's telecommunications and military sectors are though well represented in geostationary and other types of orbit. Space has made as well as spent huge fortunes, and the perceived control of space is a military as cultural objective of many "superstate" entities.

There you'll find the californians who thought this up have been busy collating history, an atlas, some theories on settlement issues, legal links, a free flag [you send them the earth postage they send you the flag, don't know how its getting there yet though] and links to the main international space players. Please note they are selling lunar real estate as well. But if you pay the 16$ lunar citizenship fee you get a discount.
