they want to build a solar power plant belt around the moon and send the collected energy back to earth - via microwave and laser beams.

what could possibly go wrong? lol.gif

Then you'll just need a huge magnifying glass to scorch earth into oblivion. No more trees.

Okay, if nobody owns the moon why is Japan acting like they do? 13.gif

"If this "Shimizu Dream" is ever actualised, the company plans to exploit as many lunar resources as possible when constructing the Solar Belt."

Exploitation for their benefit only? I don't like the way the Japanese Gov't/corporations runs (into the ground) things, e.g. Fukushima.

Yes, they certainly do.

Any way, with all the misinterpretation of this law, I am sure they will never get the chance.

"Understanding the legality of asteroid mining starts with the 1967 Outer Space Treaty. Some might argue the treaty bans all space property rights, citing Article II:

Outer space, including the moon and other celestial bodies, is not subject to national appropriation by claim of sovereignty, by means of use or occupation, or by any other means."

http://www.wired.co.uk/news/archive/2012...ning-legal

"The Outer Space Treaty states that space is the “common interest of all mankind” and that exploration or use of it “should be carried on for the benefit of all peoples.”"
