US arrogance overload!
US companies are preparing to staking their claims on the Moon, building colonies and mining for resources. Several corporations have openly stated their intentions and are making plans, but a 1967 UN treaty governing the celestial body may complicate their endeavors.
The FAA just issued a letter to commercial enterprise Bigelow Aerospace giving them exclusive rights to territory on the moon. This partly complies with the 1967 United Nations Outer Space Treaty and partly flies in the face of it. Either way, the letter marks an important turning point for all of humanity: the space race is back on, and it’s realer than ever.
