Commercial Spaceflight And The Dawning Age of NewSpace

White House, Commercial Space Companies Praise New Space Law

A White House official and representatives of three entrepreneurial space companies praised last week’s enactment of a new law that provides property rights to U.S. companies that mine resources from asteroids during an online discussion on Monday.

The final version of the Commercial Space Launch Competitiveness Act, H.R. 2262, passed the House and Senate in November and the President signed it on November 25.  It covers a broad range of commercial space issues, but Monday’s Google+ Hangout, sponsored by the Commercial Spaceflight Federation (CSF), focused on the asteroid mining provision.
