Law, Liberty, and Space

Ep. 30

For decades, the race to space was the domain of the state.  Today space is rapidly becoming commercialized, opening vast opportunities for entrepreneurs.  The commercialization of space also brings challenges.   

 

In this episode, we're bringing you a panel discussion featuring Daniel Britt, PhD., Joel Sercel, PhD., and Paul Stimers, PhD., that was delivered as part of Acton University Online 2021. The discussion was moderated by Stephen Barrows, PhD., Managing Director of Programs here at the Acton Institute.

 

This panel celebrates the role of the new space entrepreneurs and discusses the legal and philosophical principles which should underlie humanity’s shift from space exploration to industrialization and settlement.
