Western Space Webinar Series
Title: Mining (the Legally Ambiguous) Space
Speaker: Elizabeth Steyn and Valerie Oosterveld

Mining in space is increasingly moving toward reality. Spacefaring nations and entities are interested in mining asteroids and the Moon to support their in-space activities, or to bring rare-earth metals to Earth for the manufacture of electronic devices, electric vehicle batteries and military equipment. Professors Oosterveld and Steyn will discuss the international space law framework, including the Outer Space Treaty, in which such mining will take place and will examine the ambiguities of that framework when applied to the extraction and use of space resources. They will also consider the application of international environmental law applicable to sustainable and responsible mining on Earth in the context of space mining.
