As companies develop asteroid-mining technology for outer space, several governments are developing policies around this and other new asteroid activities. Dr. Alanna Krolikowski, assistant professor of history and political science at S&T, and Dr. Martin Elvis, astrophysicist at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, explore these international policy efforts in an article recently published in Space Policy.
The article, “Making policy for new asteroid activities: In pursuit of science, settlement, security, or sales?” was published May 18 in Space Policy. The international journal draws on the fields of international relations, economics, history, aerospace studies, security studies, development studies, political science and ethics to provide discussion and analysis of space activities in their political, economic, industrial, legal, cultural and social contexts.
