Newsweek recently reported that President Trump signed an executive order on Monday called the “Executive Order on Encouraging International Support for the Recovery and Use of Space Resources”.

On paper this might not seem like an immense deal, but it has incredible ramifications embedded within.

First, the United States is setting a precedent for how they are to proceed in space in the future.  The directive itself states:

“Outer space is a legally and physically unique domain of human activity, and the United States does not view space as a global commons.”[1][Bold Emphasis Added]

This will reverberate through many countries, particularly those that signed the 1979 Moon Treaty that sought to impose international regulations on non-scientific use of space resources.  According to Wikipedia, this treaty:

“turns jurisdiction of all celestial bodies (including the orbits around such bodies) over to the participant countries.  Thus, all activities would conform to international law, including the United Nations Charter”[2].

On that very issue, the Executive Order signed on April 6, 2020, asserts that:

“’ The United States is not a party to the Moon Agreement. Further, the United States does not consider the Moon Agreement to be an effective or necessary instrument to guide nation states regarding the promotion of commercial participation in the long-term exploration, scientific discovery, and use of the Moon, Mars, or other celestial bodies. Accordingly, the Secretary of State shall object to any attempt by any other state or international organization to treat the Moon Agreement as reflecting or otherwise expressing customary international law.[3][Bold & Underline Emphasis Added]

It is clear that the United States will not recognize international law in space.  What’s more, the US will seek to:

“…encourage international support for the public and private recovery and use of resources in outer space, consistent with the policy set forth in section 1 of this order.”[4][Bold Emphasis Added]


“…the Secretary of State shall seek to negotiate joint statements and bilateral and multilateral arrangements with foreign states regarding safe and sustainable operations for the public and private recovery and use of space resources.”[5][Bold & Underline Emphasis Added]

Given that the US does not see the Moon and its resources as global commons, which are “unowned natural resources”, it is seeking to setup an international joint venture with other interested countries through joint statements in the future, and bilateral or even multilateral agreements as well.  Plain and simple, the United States is seeking to create the basis for its own legal framework of cooperation in space for future endeavors, and it isn’t being subtle about it either.  What else is the United States not being subtle about?  How quickly it wants the potential for these agreements explored.

Strikingly, the United States expects a report on these efforts:

No later than 180 days after the date of this order, the Secretary of State shall report to the President, through the Chair of the National Space Council and the Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs, regarding activities carried out under section 3 of this order.”[6]

A report on those efforts seeking international arrangements is expected six months from now.  That doesn’t necessarily mean that any arrangements will have been signed thought but explored at the least.

Reading it differently, it’s almost as if the United States wants to find out who is going to be on team USA in future space (commercial) operations, at a minimum.  Therefore, although mining resources are the overarching idea discussed within the Executive Order, the implied premise is protection of those assets acquired by joint cooperation, not unlike the navies that nations used to do in the past.

Centuries ago, for commerce to be conducted, nations required a fleet of ships on the sea lanes to protect the assets and treasures acquired that were sought after by pirates and the like.  Protection of assets in space will be no different, for without a stable means of protecting the resources acquired, there will be no insurance, and without any insurance there will be no investment, and without investments there will be no commercialization.  Therefore, the protection of those assets is within the implied framework of the Executive Order, which means the weaponization of space, if that hasn’t already taken place.

Ultimately, the United States is seeking to not only create an international conceptual framework for its commercial operations, but it also seeks to begin exploring the foundation for how those commercial dealings will be protected, and who are the countries that it might be able to count on when that time comes.
