From the Cato Institute
comes this paper exploring the best choices for law on the red planet when colonization
Mars is a case of what political theorists would call a perfect state of nature. No one lives on Mars. No one currently has legal title to any part of Mars. On what basis then can Mars be exploited by individuals or consortia?
Of course, Kim Stanley Robinson
has already explored this subject
in his ground-breaking Martian trilogy
